CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (CNN) – After officially calling for a national war on cancer if she were president, Sen. Hillary Clinton took a swipe at President Bush.
At the Livestrong Presidential Cancer Forum in Cedar Rapids Monday, Clinton said, "What really bothers me is that we are on the brink of so many medical breakthroughs right now...The current administration has literally called a halt to the war with cancer."
Clinton then went even further, accusing the administration of creating a "war against science."
Asked who was leading it, Clinton responded, "The president."
She offered a few suggestions as part of her new proposal today to fight cancer. One included speeding up the approval of drugs from the Food and Drug Administration and fixing problems with insurance.
"As president I want to end insurance discrimination against those who suffer from cancer. It has been the cause of so many families going into bankruptcy."
