Is Donald Trump correct about drug companies taking advantage of the poor and defenseless?

Who would expect this from the leader of a pro-business political party: Pfizer & others should be ashamed that they have raised drug prices for no reason. They are merely taking advantage of the poor & others unable to defend themselves, while at the same time giving bargain basement prices to other countries in Europe & elsewhere. We will respond! – Donald Trump,  10:08 AM – 9 Jul 2018 It’s […]

Should drug company execs get life in prison for their predatory pricing that endangers our lives?

Illegal drug dealers, who are designated as major suppliers, will face the electric chair or gas chamber if President Donald Trump has his way. Our sometimes alert members of Congress voice agreement, now suddenly aware that criminals who sell opioids, like heroin and oxycodone, deserve more than slap-on-wrist fines or jail time. Don’t bet on the death penalty just yet for these creatures. With decades of litigation possible, it’s easier […]

If all you want for Christmas is your two front teeth, it’s time to borrow $6,400 or pay 1/3 price in India

And that is just the beginning of their constituents’ dental problems. Some 140 million Americans have no dental insurance, and for most who do pay premiums, the coverage won’t cover the cost […]

Americans suffer while drug companies make a fortune because FDA isn’t timely approving generics

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) last year had 4,036 generic drug applications waiting for approval. In October 2012, there was a backlog of 2,868 drugs. It now takes a median 47 months to approve a generic drug by the FDA – nearly four years. What does this mean to the healthcare consumer?

How a Medicaid divorce can save you millions.

Leave it to the scions of Washington D.C. to break up middle class marriages. Under current law if your spouse enters a nursing home, both of you are obligated to pay for care. With an average Social Security check at about $14,000, the cost of a nursing home is impossible to pay out of current income. Most folks dip into savings. But even a family with say, $400,000 saved over […]
