    Ok, ok. As a rule, I don't read your shilling, but I had a look. Found this:
    This is the kind of thing we'll have to deal with on a regular basis if the Democrats succeed in forcing us all into Medicare. Our health care will depend on politicians rather than the market. I guess you guys call that a win.

    Drug companies are demanding more welfare for themselves, is all; they want bigger dividends for the hedge funds that own most of the stock in Big Pharma. They want to overcharge Americans even more than the 1,000% + they do now.

    If everyone stopped using their health "insurance" for non-emergency doctor visits the cost would drop dramatically.

    Yes, the drugs administered in the doctor's office is exactly what I was referring to. Why don't republicans want CMS to negotiate lower drug prices?
