60 Minutes

Aside from the entirety of the US government and corresponding colluded Big Businesses, the Pharms take the cake. As evidenced tonight by the 60 minutes report, blah blah with "needing money for R&D to bring you better drugs." Medicaid getting the screws. The public getting the screws. All so that we can watch some commercial with a golden retreiver jumpimg up and down on Sally the Soccer Mom all happy in the sunshine because her hemmorhoids are cured.

Human Need not Corporate Greed

Jim you couldn't have said it better. The US Govt and Bio Pharms beat all in who-not-to-trust. Pfizer and GWB (Greedy White Bonehead) top the list. So much evidence against them... it's a wonder we're still here at all.

RE: 60 Minutes

Yeah, Pharms no doubt. The stuff you can buy in mexico is the same, and it mostly aint stolen. all in all its REALLY THAT CHEAP but for some reason America feels that there must be a 1000% profit margin on all medications. And saw reports once of hospitals faking amounts on bills to steal from the insurance companies. Charging like $300 for a tongue depressor. So the two reasons its so hard to get good care and get it for reasonable prices are the outrageous costs and the hypochondriacs who go to the emergency room for a hangnail and end up with the insurance company paying $900 and taking up 2 hours of the ER time. SCREW THE INDUSTRY!
