There should be an option for people who are willing to accept a little more risk to have the option of taking newer drugs or having latest medical technology and not necessarily FDA approved. And if someone wants something that has been tested be able to use that. Nothing is 100% safe for 100% of the people.

Sounds like the CEOs are a little out of touch with reality. Europe & Japan are every bit as tough a place as the US to get drug and device approval. And the easy sailing in the rest of the world is great, if you just want to sell your product in Singapore, India, and China. Sounds like election year 'gimme more' whining.
