Chronicles of the Nanny State (cont.)

Wall Street Journal: The government could start paying impartial experts to visit doctors to talk about the safety, effectiveness and cost of prescription drugs and other treatments.

The idea would be to give presentations along the lines of those given by company drug reps. But the federally funded presentations would provide a counterweight to the industry messages on specific drugs.

I did not know there was such a thing as an "impartial expert."
