Quote – Minority report in House of Representatives.

The bill as reported jeopardizes the traditional right of self-medication and choice of remedies….The bill could very well become a handmaiden of socialized medicine.

The strong House version of the amendment, which expanded the FDA’s ability to judge based on efficacy as well, was protested by a minority report (above). From Taking Your Medicine, p. 52.
