I’m a Republican to the bone and I agree with this. Big Pharma is an evil organization
Bryan Andrews (1 месяц назад)
I completely agree with this. They are just in it for the money. Whats your opinon on the conspiracy that Big Pharma has cures to certain diseases but is not releasing them for economic reasons?
Theodore Hellerud (2 месяца назад)
Don't buy drugs. I don't use any and I never will. Drugs are not a good way to be healthy. Forget drugs.

What the fuck will it take for Americans to see this is war!! And not just in this issue the whole system works for the ones running it. Only! They're cutting this great nation a bit finer among themselves!! Free market?? There's nothing free about america open your eyes wider, I've seen this place go from truly free to fucking fascists. And nobody seems to care, as long as they get to eat their ring dings.

Hey thank our government officials that sold out on their people! Taking bribes from lobbyists?? That's automatic prison time! But small time drug dealers on the streets get major time? I now know why and it's not for moral reasons! The street drug dealers are cutting into pharmaceutical profits and now they have "our" police protecting it. They're sellouts too.

And who is paying for these drugs? The government because the people cannot afford it.

Mark Jr. Why doesn't the government pay for supplements or naturopathic medicine?

Now Supreme Court is also throwing us under the bus. If harmed by low cost generic drugs we cannot sue. If harmed by brand name drugs we can sue. So the poor pay all the bills but have no legal rights
Dede Tudor (22 дня назад)
Jeff and Lydia Micalizzi ...and the insurance company only pays for the generic. 🤑

Go vegan and that will reduce your need for drugs and these high drug prices.

GENERIC DRUGS CAN KILL YOU AND YOU HAVE NO LEGAL RIGHTS. ONLY THE BRAND NAME MANUFACTURERS CAN BE SUED FOR THE EXACT SAME PILL. SUPREME COURT IS THE PROBLEM THEY MADE THIS DECISION. THE COSTS ARENT BAD ENOUGH!!! NOT A JOKE! NO ONE TOLD ME I COULD DIE IF I TOOK AN ANTIBIOTIC BRAND NAME OR NOT! YET BECAUSE WE ARE POOR AND CANT AFFORD OR THE INSURANCE CO. WON'T PAY FOR IT WE DOOOO NOOOT HAVE LEGAL RIGHTS. POOR OR NOT THE SAME EXACT DRUG DID THE DAMAGE ONE YOU CAN SUE THE OTHER YOU CANNOT. WE THE POOR ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL

Levaquin almost killed me and I will never be the same; Cepro and another one of them can harm you for life.

The price of everything is always the big issues. FDA is subsidized by Big Pharma. If we choose generic drugs cost is lower in most respects. However, if we are harmed in any way we have no legal rights says the Supreme Court essentially. We cannot sue for damages. The FDA approves food and drugs, what we eat is ridiculous, processed food is poison essentially. What bothers me is there are people who are poor, cannot afford brand name and the insurance companies will not pay for brand name drugs. Bis business in the US is responsible for our need for drugs. They cause the problem and then when they hurt us the gov takes away our rights to get legitimate compensation. I think they are all in on it, we know it. So only the rich people in the US ARE CREATED EQUAL. Its not only Big Pharma

Nexium is a new drug Big Pharma devoloped to replace the drug 'prilosec', which ran out of patent and was going to be generic. It's a 'mirror' drug, which means that it does *exactly* what prilosec does but they can and did patent it anew. So why aren't doctors prescribing prilosec, which would cost only *pennies*? Because of kickbacks. So if you need an acid reflux drug and your doctor prescribes nexium, tell him/her to prescribe you prilosec instead and if he or she tells you nexium 'is better', tell him/her to stuff it and that you will be looking for another doctor who isn't in Big Pharma's back pocket. But alas, that is not the primary problem. Big Pharma also has a big grip on politicians and the media, and they have convinced the world that cholesterol is bad for you (cholesterol is essential to life) and that you need pill with devastating 'side effects' (which will generate even more revenue for Big Pharma) to even keep alive. Add to that that bigwigs at the FDA will steamboat-for-approval iffy drugs and procedures only to leave the FDA and miraculously be offered six figure positions at Big Pharma, and you get a clearer picture of the primary problem.

Hey guys, I heard eel farts cure cancer and erectile dysfunction. Down with pharma! Also, 911 was a conspiracy to distract us from the FDA so pharma could get away with charging too much for flu vaccines that give you autism. Also pharma is hiding the cure for cancer but don't take it because that will give you autism too. Please sign my petition to ban dihydrogen monoxide!!

People don't know what they don't know. It takes 20 years and costs billions of dollars to get a drug that saves your life on the market. Hospitals are guilty of charging too much for cancer drugs, and insurance companies are guilty of not covering these treatments. There are questions more fundamental to the cost of drugs other than what the pharma companies charge. What is this word big pharma? Half the life saving drugs are developed by very tiny drug companies. Some of the big pharma companies don't even play in the life saving space. They make medications that make your dick hard or grow your eye lashes. The advertising dollars are spent chronic, primary care type illnesses. If you want to be consistent let's look at how much they spend on advertising oncology drugs. I have no problem with recommending we reduce the cost of treatments, but keep in mind this is a hospital problem and an insurance problem more than a pharma problem.

They create cancer (crappy food, car exhaust ect.)  than charge people to cure it...

Please be advised; although this video does not show, the high prices are for brand name (under patent) drugs only. Once a drug becomes 'generic' after having its patent expire, the price drops because generic manufacturers like Teva, Barr, and Corepharma take over the market. Durring this time the original designer of the drug, lets say GSK, can no longer sell the drug because the generic becomes so cheap. Bigger companies can not compete for generic manufacturers drugs because they are top heavy with R and D expenses.

Yes, manufactured drugs and vaccinations are worthless.  The only thing they've done for humanity  is eliminate or mostly eradicate malaria, mumps, polio, smallpox, measles, dracunculiasis, rubella, pork tapeworm, whooping cough, neonatal tetanus, diphtheria, yellow fever,  poliomyelitis, rinderpest, yaws, Lymphatic filariasis , Onchocerciasis,  chicken pox,  Haemophilus Influenzae, Pertussis,  Pneumococcal Disease and  typhoid fever.

Check out the FOOD MATTERS documentary or FORKS OVER KNIVES. Which means, veggies over open heart surgery.

Why do people depend on drugs? Do we have a drug deficiency? Wake up every one, we've done it to our selves, stop eating processed and fast food! Eat fresh fruits and veggies. We are all malnourished, which brings on disease.. There are cancer cures and heart disease and many others. Check out Charlotte Gerson. We don't need doctors, we need to take responsibility for our health.

Did you read Joey Feek’s story; she raised her garden and chickens; so what went wrong and she died of cancer.
Markus Eisenhammer (4 года назад)
English Language is precisly in this case and call the stuff drugs and not medicine. Medicine is to cure decises, drugs are just expensive and cure nothing. So, just dont buy it and search for an alternative. There are enough and really cheap.

1 of 3 Yep ! Stop voting republican and you'll see America be a lot better place because Republican Party are the evil new world order George W. Bush 911 that happen because he had 7 warnings before America was attacked and did nothing and he was going after weapons of mass destruction that never existed and begging for the United Nations to go to Iraq
Anti Hypocrite (4 года назад)
2 of 3 And now all Americans has to have surveillance on every phone call an e-mail that we put out because George W. Bush all because he did some stupid and we'll have to pay for it not as much as the people died on 911 or the soldiers that went to war and died because people profit off of war .

The agencies charged with regulating big business (FDA, EPA, etc) are allowing us to be poisoned with industrial chemicals and junk food while profiting off our illness. There is a revolving door between the FDA and Big Pharma in which the same people work for both. Conflict of interest much? If these agencies aren't going to put people over profits, they need to be abolished. They're doing the exact opposite of their stated purpose.
Anti Hypocrite (5 лет назад)
Who in the world is talking about going to the government we the people have to show that government that we are their bosses and once we stop voting republican party they will understand that the people are the bosses and not corporations.
Anti Hypocrite (5 лет назад)
There are good governments and their that governments and the American people made a start making the outcome of our government. It's a Republican Party that does not believe and regulations that's why Wall Street the banks walk over the American people if I pay taxes for this government that runs America I got some say.
Anti Hypocrite (5 лет назад)
We the people have to have a say so and we need some people to run the country and the evil new world of the republican are not the ones to do so after 911 and who started the new evil world order on 911.
Anti Hypocrite (5 лет назад)
1 of 2 To excuse me I do not listen to everything that Obama said but the Republican Party is the worse of two evils in that party needs of the instinct it will happen because they lack of intelligence like you have the majority of the people of America are sick and tired of the Republican Party not doing nothing for America to be great once again.
Anti Hypocrite (5 лет назад)
The only reason why things are not working in Washington, DC is because republican party always throws a wrench into the works at least president Obama is trying to make Health Care affordable for all Americans instead of paying $8.00 for a aspirin when you are in the hospital. The Republican Party or to stop for the rich and they don't give a damn for the middle class are working poor.

I would like to point out that the price of drugs in the US is pushed up not only by the lack of buying monopolies but also because mergers and aquisitions have drastically reduced real competition betweew big pharma firms aided also by the continuous extension of intellectual property (which also discourages a real innovation in favor of short-term and copycat stategies)

If Exxon and the other major oil companies can get subsidize for oil research and development, then why can’t we have the major pharmaceutical companies be subsidize further research and development. There’s something very wrong here, I just can’t put my finger on it.
