As a physician, Senator Frist has a moral calling to save lives and alleviate suffering. He joins Nancy Reagan, dozens of Nobel Laureates, thousands of scientists, and millions of patients across the nation in calling for an end to the restrictions that have shackled the search for new cures. I applaud his courage in putting patients over politics.
The President's handling of the war has been a toxic mix of ignorance, arrogance, and stubborn ideology. No amount of Presidential rhetoric or preposterous campaign spin can conceal the truth about the steady downward spiral in our national security since President Bush made the decision to go to war in Iraq.
