Newt Gingrich is coming to Burlingame this weekend to headline the California Republican Party spring convention.
The presidential candidate has outlined his legislative proposals should he be elected into office.
One of those is to "Maximize the speed and impact of medical breakthroughs by removing unnecessary obstacles that block new treatments from reaching patients and emphasizing research spending toward urgent national priorities, like brain science with its impact on Alzheimer’s, autism, Parkinson’s, mental health and other conditions that knowledge of the brain will help solve," according to his campaign website.
What do you think of this proposal? Do you believe there is too much red tape in getting treatments approved by the Food and Drug Administration?
