Is This The Single Biggest Issue In Lowering Health Care Costs?
Long-time health freedom fighter, Bill Faloon, of Life Extension Foundation, outlines in clear detail how the costs of drugs is about 3 to 15 times higher than they would be if the prices weren't artificially inflated by drug companies working with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Trillions of dollars are being siphoned from taxpayers because of this flamboozlery.
Additionally, drug prices are being raised 10, 20, 30 and even 40 percent in 2009 for no reason other than because drug companies are getting positioned to take advantage of changes in the health care system.
Of special note is how the Medicare Prescription Drug Act was passed during the Bush administration's last days. It requires the United States government (that means us taxpayers) to pay full prices for drugs for Medicare recipients. The prices are not negotiated, even though all legitimate industries negotiate when buying in great volumes.
The details in this Faloon's article show how this one issue, the real cost of generic drugs, is part of what's bankrupting our government and us, the people who pay the bills.
I urge you to read the entire article and then send a letter to your representatives.
I believe it's a long shot, as at this time the Obama administration gives no indication they are going to break the cycle of the robbery being committed on taxpayers. (I am very disappointed with President Obama.)
Even so, I am putting energy into promoting Bill Faloon's initiative.
Ideally, we'd all have health care coverage, and drugs and medical services would be priced so that everyone could access them, as they do in Cuba and other countries that have better health care than we do. No one should be left out. Any other system that leaves people out, when so many have so much wealth, I believe to be grossly immoral.
