Don't ask, don't tell

President Obama's health secretary was boasting recently that because of the health care takeover, drug companies will see their profits reduced $90 billion over the next 10 years.
When the cheers subside, will someone answer this question:
How many people will die because they didn't get the new drugs that would have been developed had that money been put into research?
Who will develop and produce new life-saving drugs?
The French?
Perhaps the Obama administration will issue an executive order directing drug companies to produce new drugs, at no cost, because that is their duty to society.
That should do the trick.
