From the Paper:

"The costs of prescription drugs has risen nearly 20% annually (Washington Post, August 2002) for the past few years because of increased demand and consumer advertising. Not to mention the lobbying ability of the pharmaceutical companies. Generic drugs are generally about half the cost of their brand counterparts and it is estimated that this bill could result in health care savings of an estimated $60 billion over the next ten years. (Washington Post, August 2002)."
