Europe Targets Drug Prices for Budget Savings - WSJ.com
I see. The customer bargaining with the supplier is a very bad thing, correct? What would Adam Smith say?
keep repeating the mantra. CHANGE!
I hope the country enjoys the change.
LOL. Yes, this nation does, indeed, enjoy change. Look at our history. And brace yourself for some really major changes, both good and bad, in the coming years.
That customer will be bargaining with your medication, and not buying medication that you need. Don't worry about it though, you trust them.
Medicare did this for years. And it resulted in huge, massive, savings. Republicans stopped that and now Medicare pays much more money for the exact same product.
Republicans: Making government suck and then saying that government can't run efficiently.
And yes. I trust the government more than a private for profit corporation. And anyone in their right mind would.
Medicare did not start covering prescription drugs until 2003, when exactly did they do this, and for how many years?
Hmm, indeed. My bad.
With all the corruption, greedy self important idealogues in govt, you place your trust there? At least with a "for profit" corp, there is money motivation and competition to keep that in check. After all we have seen, at least through the past 4 administrations, and you still trust govt more. That is scary but its your life and not mine.
I don't put my trust in either but much less in govt.
That happens now. Except it's private companies doing it to bolster their bottom lines.
