Bob T:

The poll question should not be an either/or question. The drug cost is usually the largest segment of the ER benefit program so there would be savings to the ER. At the same time, the governments would pick up a good deal of costs which have to be funded on some basis. And to be simple, it may be just an increase in the EHT rather than a new dedicated tax, we need to keep these things simple.
