Pharmaceutical Mafia

Posted By on Thu, Jun 29, 2006 at 11:59 AM

Ever wonder why our health care is so expensive?

It's because we are subsidizing the pharmaceutical drug industry. At what point did we (present company excluded—I have no prescription drug coverage) become such a pill-popping society?  Maybe when every major network started advertising pharmaceutical drugs: Ask your doctor about the purple pill … so s/he can be rewarded with expensive electronic toys and trips to resorts. Maybe if these doctors stopped bopping every pill that came down the pike, their malpractice insurance wouldn't be so high.

Since the drug lobbyists are bigger than yours, the problem is not going away any time soon. For an eye-opening article, read the latest TruthOut editorial.
