I bet this is nothing more than a publicity stunt to promote Hillary's new drug plan.

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/hillary-clinton-rolls-out-plan-to-rein-in-high-prescription-drug-costs/

Why else would someone suddenly increase the price of a drug exponentially over night without giving a reason at the exact same time the democratic front-runner announces a plan to counter this?

My husband is currently awaiting liver transplant, and of the many & varied medications he is on, one of the most important is a steroid (I think) that costs $450/pill - he needs 4 a day!! We are just lucky that he is able to get these on PBS, for a nominal amount - if we had to pay for them he would probably not be still with me!!

Now this is just cruel. Considering people with HIV are already dying and only prolonging their life by but a few months to a few years taking the medication.... it should be affordable for them, to say the least.

Well i can see why everyone is unhappy but HIV is scary. Frankly, HIV has adapted and evolved to the point where there is almost nothing that can suppress it anymore. It is just immune to everything drug companies can throw at it. That evolved strain keeps on evolving and getting stronger, so while I believe people should be able to get any help they need, it is costing more and more to develop different ways to suppress the virus. If you make it too unprofitable no one will make any drugs for it at all.

The Heritage Foundation "plan" was in response to Clinton's health care initiative - a less harmful approach; it had nothing to do with the ACA. What's more, not one Republican voted for the ACA - it is 100% Democrat Liberals who own it.

I was talking about the spike in medicine mentioned in the original post, but since you brought it up (the price spikes will continue to trickle (flood?) in): http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/obamacare-premium-hikes-for-2016-ignore-them-at-your-own-risk/article/2566556

Of course the real cost of the ACA is hidden by the government subsidies. The death panels will come into effect as a cost cutting measure - got to force those elderly nuns to get their contraceptives! Well, the high costs are not affecting me yet since I am not paying for them; would be nice to have affordable health care for when I do need it.


Never said there weren't premium hikes state and showed they aren't the fearful thing you claim. How the Republicans voted doesn't matter since they were dead set against any help for the middle class have been for decades. And again there are no death panels this is just a lie spun out to scare folks that refuse to actually do the research themselves.

The original concept for the ACA was Nixon and then Heritage, this is the can of worms they created. As for the original post this is the normal behavior you see in a laza faire economy and is the result of little or no regulation. But you will of course ignore history and blame the president.

Again you haven't proven anything no law has been broken at this time so how did he violate any agency or law? Obamacare in it's current form was originally a Heritage foundation idea here is the history on this. http://healthcarereform.procon.org/view.resource.php?resourceID=004182 1993 was the original date of this idea not 2008.

As for the orphan drug act true it was actually pushed for because we had a problem at the time and Reagan was willing to sign off on it which is fine but the fine tuning that happened under Bush 2 made it easier to actually get approval as a orphan drug. So again what law or agencies have been abused violate or laws have been broken?

Regan Reagan sold arms to our enemies for hostages cut and ran when we were attacked and blew up the defects by three times its original amount 700 billion before 2.1 trillion after all that stealth spending on defense.yup real republican there they have all followed in his footsteps.

So what how did he violate a rule or law or agency again?

Yes the guy is an asshat and should be taken out behind the barn and beaten. This is why we need a single payer healthcare system oh wait we have one Medicare we could easily expand that to everyone that is a citizen and actually get control over this dirt bags. The other option is of course jacking their personal tax rates back up to where they were before Reagan and actually making them pay their fair share. Both work this idea of allow business to do as they please doesn't and never will. Which is the librarian mantra just let everyone do as they wish the hell with the society.



Let's see here, let's say gvblackmoon get up in the middle of the night to go use the bathroom, he stubs his toe on the way to the bathroom and starts to blame the Germans for it.

You can not call this a "Libertarian idea" if there was zero Libertarian input on this subject.

Again, did I say he BROKE any laws? Nope, but he sure as fuck is abusing them.

For most people, rate hikes are indeed the fearful result of Obamacare; increasing premiums AND increasing deductibles are straining family budgets. This hasn't been a laza faire economy - ever; the period when it "was" saw the biggest increase in the standard of living in American history. The EPA sure messed up a lot of rivers with that mine spill - I just don't have that kid of faith in Big Government regulators. I'm sure various ideas similar to the ACA have been kicked around but the ones who draft the plan (not Nixon or Heritage) are the ones responsible. The Republicans want to help "the middle class" - they just have better policies; they didn't vote for the ACA because it was (and is) bad policy that harms the middle class ...and the poor.

As I mentioned above, this is coinciding with the wicked witch of the west coming out with a plan to tackle rising drug costs. It should obvious at this point that the mainstream media is in Hillary's pockets.

I kinda made a snide remark about it earlier how someone couldn't allow a rescue to happen in a timeframe BUT already has a plan for this?

Yeah bullshit.

And isn't this kid CEO getting sued for 75million from his last employer?

Let's dump another $300 per person per month on poor people!

Mister Moonbeam is complaining about Reagan's debt increase, but hasn't said boo on the epic level shit-storm the current President is leaving.
