Big Phrama wants you.
Consider the following: About 72% of prescription drugs dispensed in this country are for generic medicines, but name-brand drugs account for 80 percent of prescription costs.
Another report, this one by the Government Accountability Office, shows that prescription----specifically for brand-name drugs---are soaring. Between 2000 and 2008, the prices of 416 branded drugs increased by more than 100 percent. While most increases ranged fromm 100 to 499 percent, reported The New York Times, some prices rose more than 1,000 percent, with the largest increase at 4,200 percent.
A couple of recent reports have shown that name-brand drug costs have risen dramatically and that major companies are making more deals with generic-drug manufacturers to keep their cheap products off the market--a practice known as "pay-for-delay."
The unconscionable gouging of consumers by Big Phrama, as the giant pharmaceutical industry continues it's crony Capitalism.
Why are the Republicans allowing Big Phrama to set exorbitant prices for lifesaving drugs and blocking affordable generic alternatives.
Obama spoke of the need to regulate these actions, but the Republicans refuse to listen.
What's up with the Republicans confusing crony capitalism with the free market. Don't they know the difference.

Where did you get your information for the figures from? I would like to investigate this myself before replying.

Do your own homework. You're avoiding the issue. Never commit, seldom deny, and always distinguish.

Those that support Obama's health policy(Obamacare) have no clue what it will do to this country. By taking away the health insurance companies policy of denying people who have pre existing conditions, this legislation guarantees that premiums will go up and will almost certainly put health insurance companies out of business. This is like buying car insurance after you have an accident. It will allow people to forego buying health insurance until they actually get sick.Obviously these people have no clue how insurance works. All this will do is put insurance companies out of business paving the way for nationwide government run healthcare.The government has done an absolutely pisspoor job of running Medicare, Medicaid, and VA health services.If the government cannot provide adequate healthcare for seniors and the poor and veterans, then how will they do it for everyone in the country? The answer is they can't.And it will bankrupt the country. But try to tell the ones that think they are going to get something for free.

You are a bigoted racist uneducated piece of white trash
You must be very special yourself! To be able to make such accusations about someone you absolutely do not know. How do you make such assumptions, unless, in fact, you ARE what you say she is!

The fact is, Obama will go down in the history books as THE WORST president in American history!!
