You have to be a pretty sadistic, greedy, mean-spirited, vile, wretched, and corrupt industry to overcharge the elderly and the poor (not mutually exclusive). But if anyone can be sure to sink to that level, it’s big Pharma!
Let’s see. You overcharge community health centers, which are already facing budget cuts, and trying to maintain the safety net in this country, taking care of the poor and working class of this country. And then, to top that, you raise the costs of drugs so that the Medicare prescription drug card discounts just maintain your current level of revenues! Brillant!
(And then you pay doctors $10,000 to prescribe your drugs.) If that’s not an industry that cares about the health of the population, I don’t know who does. I’m guessing GreaterRX won’t be covering these stories.
