51 – Prescription Drug Prices & Healthcare

It’s an understatement to say that prescription drugs are far too costly in the United States compared to other nations. The Pharmaceutical industries hold over our government extends far beyond lawmakers… What about those who interpret the law? A Federal judge recently ruled against a rule change put into effect by the President that would require pharmaceutical manufacturers to disclose prices on televised advertisements. The judge ruled that the rule violates “1st amendment rights”. Sounds like a broad, garbage interpretation to me. What about the patient? What about the consumer? Prescription drugs are just the first dish in a platter of disaster in our American healthcare system.

They’ll be live as well, so this will be completely unedited. As you all know I am left leaning in my politics, so I will be talking to those of an opposing ideology BUT debate is debate nonetheless, and starting a dialogue is key in the country right now.
