FDA Reform

In a December 2021, the Center for Medical Economics and Innovation observed, "The FDA, a huge and critically important but dysfunctional organization, now needs a bold, clear-thinking reformer...

"Government regulation offers some reassurance to the public, to be sure, but when it is wrongheaded or merely fails to be cost-effective, it actually costs lives: directly by withholding life-saving and life-enhancing products and indirectly by diverting societal resources to gratuitous regulatory compliance.


"The stakes are high. The FDA’s purview is wide, regulating pharmaceuticals, medical devices, food, and tobacco products that account for about 20 cents of every consumer dollar. The FDA has pushed the average cost (including out-of-pocket expenses and opportunity costs) to bring a new drug to market to over $2.5 billion . That ensures that many new drugs will have a hefty price tag and that others won’t get developed at all."


Here is the specific topic to build consensus around FDA Reform.

Every candidate and every political party who fields candidates for public office should both have and publish their position on this camp topic (FDA Reform) as a condition for public support, so people know how the candidate proposes to represent them, and they (the people) can hold him (shorthand for all genders) accountable for how their actual representation and votes compare to what their campaign position on this topic was.

Please consider the topic (FDA Reform) for which you believe some position should be part of the platform you support.

The point here is to indicate that some position on this topic should be included in a party's platform. Not to indicate, here, what that particular position on the topic is. You can weigh in on specific positions where the links to do that indicate.
