    In all fairness...the prices of medications was going to do this pretty much anyway.
    The Obamas and pretty much ALL politicians are in the pockets of the big Pharmas, Big Oil etc etc etc

    We're on the roller coaster to 3rd world status.....everything's gonna be unaffordable before long

    Wanted to go bowling the other day for the first time in a decade....

    $5.00 per game + $5.00 to rent shoes. meh....me thinks not

    Yeah, bad news when people can't get the meds they need to live. Elections have consequences. Perhaps we need a "Revolucion" ?

    Insulin has an inelastic demand curve meaning the producers can charge whatever they want.

    AmeriKKKa is all about making money, capitalism, being profitable, looking out for number one, etc.

    The nation has outlived it's former usefulness.

    We are on the downward side of the Hubbert curve & nearing the bottom aka the sewage.

    There are industries that benefit from the unhealthy, sick, weak and old. I don't disagree with that. The rest of your post is over the top.

    Insulin has been around for a hundred years

    No reason for it to skyrocket in price
