No White House enthusiasm on health cost savings proposal

Here is an excerpt from the above news link:
Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D.. is seeking a vote on his proposal to permit the importation of prescription drugs from Canada and other countries as a cost-saving measure for consumers. The proposal is opposed by the pharmaceutical industry and has drawn a noticeable lack of enthusiasm from the White House, which has been working closely with drugmakers in the months-long effort to enact health care legislation.
