Opinion: Negotiate Drug Prices

By George Smith  — September 16, 2021

Any elected official who is AGAINST a movement to allow Medicare to negotiate with drug companies to reduce the exorbitant cost of medication  deserves nothing less than to be ousted in the next election.

Without putting too fine a brush to it, they are bought and paid for by big company campaign contributions.

Think! Why are folks buying needed medications in Mexico and Canada? They are cheaper because these countries created a system that does not make drug companies accountable for exorbitant pricing.

The U.S. encourages high drug costs by allowing full-bore access to elected officials by big pharmaceutical lobbyists who “buy” influence via campaign cash.

And we keep electing these yahoos over and over. Term limits would go a long way to help move “honesty” back in politics.
