Big Pharma plans to stop allowing Canadian pharmacies to buy their supplies of prescription drugs through wholesalers (starting with Pfizer); instead, they’ll have to buy directly, presumably causing huge cost increases. Now, the thing that I don’t get is this: Canada (as well as most countries) has been buying through bulk purchasing for years. It seems like Pfizer’s only *now* going after the pharmacies because they’re now serving Americans (and cutting into Pfizer’s profit margins from Americans who pay waaaay too much for drugs). If Pfizer wasn’t happy about Canada buying in bulk, wouldn’t they have gone after them when they started their medicare program in 1965? So what, Pfizer, you’ll allow Canadians to get their drugs cheaply, but not Americans? Call me crazy, but I think Ann Coulter would call that anti-American, unpatriotic, and treasonous.
