Dear American citizens:
When the Republicans talk about “Affordable Heathcare,” one of the options they tout is “Repeal and Replace.” Given their past history, a Republican “Replace” option concerns me more than anything else. Republicans have always prohibited Medicare — the single largest buyer — from attempting to negotiate drug prices, consistent with the pharmaceutical companies’ philosophy that completely unrestrained prices and profits are necessary to fund the risk-taking of research and development. Medicare is required by Congress to accept the pharmaceutical companies’ prices without comparison or negotiation, add 6 percent to it, and pay it. As a perpetual gift to the pharmaceutical companies, when Part D of Medicare was passed in 2003, Congress prohibited Medicare from negotiating altogether. There were some reciprocal gifts from the pharmaceutical companies to the cooperating Congressmen, as might be expected.

We are becoming a nation of part time workers. Our national debt is a disaster waiting to happen. Perhaps this is what our President had in mind when he said “I want to fundamentally transform America”.

“I see that the country Uruguay is going to fully legalize marijuana and that their government is going to grow it and sell it for $1.00 a gram. What effect will this have on marijuana growers and traffickers? Put them out of business. Will American learn any lessons from this? Probably not.”
