Rep. Waxman maps health agenda for next Congress

Wall Street Journal (blog), December 10, 2008

Rep. Henry Waxman, incoming chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, has started laying out his healthcare priorities. High on the list after Congress comes back next year is more scrutiny of drug marketing. Health reform under Obama, Waxman added, is doable and even more important in light of the downturn in the economy. Also high on Congress' to-do list next year are help for the states on Medicaid and an expansion of the State Children's Health Insurance Plan.
