Bug of the day.
Doctors or other medical spokesmen in the media pushing the latest cholesterol lowering or whatever medication. "It only costs two or three dollars a day for most patients." Let me see, take an average of 2.5 x 365. That's just over $900.00 a year on top of whatever else they've got you on. If you don't have insurance you probably can't afford it. If you have insurance, somebody (you and your employer are paying for it.) That's if your insurance covers perscriptons.
Since I don't see our government telling the drug companies "Look you have the equivalent of a regulated monopoly here. You get cost of developing the drug plus 5%." I don't see the cost of drugs coming down anytime soon. Unless we want to just sign our paychecks over to Merck, Bristol Meyers, ect. I guess we're just going to have to figure out how to not need their products.
Like du jour:
Hugs. Need I say more :-) They're one of the things that increase as you give them away.
