Importing cheaper prescription drugs from Canada has become a hot topic.

Now Gov. Doyle says the federal government's attempt to block the state from importing those drugs is costing Wisconsin taxpayers millions of dollars.

People can buy drugs from Canadian pharmacies for much less money than in the U.S.

That's why Doyle wants to go to Canada for the state's pharmaceutical needs, but he says members of the Bush Administration are blocking that move.

"I could save taxpayers of Wisconsin $70-100 million if we could purchase our prescription drugs the state's prescription drugs from Canada," said Doyle.

Doyle says President Bush is standing up for the pharmaceutical companies and not the American people on the issue of affordable drugs.
