consultants are sandburs

"Our drug costs are out of control because that's the way the pharmaceutical companies want it. Drug lobbyists have been able to block Medicare from negotiating better prices on behalf of the American people. [...]Americans should not have to live in fear that they will go bankrupt if they get sick. People should not have to go without the medication they need just because their elected officials aren't willing to challenge the drug lobby. The public is fed up, and they have a right to be fed up. It is time we joined the rest of the industrialized world -– not only by enacting a national health care program, but by implementing prescription-drug policies that work for everybody, not just the CEOs of the pharmaceutical industry."

The quote is from a Bernie item, online. Bernie not only cares, he has legislative answers, actual pending bills. All that is needed is more backbone and less Pharma lobbyist love among his Senate colleagues, and in the House.

Instead of the Republican lust to prolong their little Benghazi circus act, which is becoming tedious and counterproductive to their aim of derailing Hillary Clinton's presidential candidacy, they should concentrate instead on fixing things that are broken big time. And Big Pharma (and Little Boutique Pharma too) screwing us all, the loyal and trusting citizens of the US of A, is an obscene situation that should be ended. If the Republicans continue their blind eye to the problem, vote them out and put in people who will actually change things, beyond CHANGE as slogan.

Vote the bastards out.

Fix things with new and better people in office.

It is the only chance at having a better nation, one more caring over citizen comfort and well being and less caring about serving the goals and ends of corporatism over all else.
