A Cancer Drug's Big Price Rise Disturbs Doctors and Patients

glenda asks how many people are the pharmaceuticals leaving to die?

Saw an article in the New York Times, A Cancer Drug's Big Price Rise Disturbs Doctors and Patients.

One woman in Georgetown TX went to pick up her cancer meds and spent $77.50 for a two week supply. Two weeks later the price for the same amount of the drug, not covered by insurance, had soared to $548.01. This is not because it cost any more to make this drug, but because a smaller company had purchased the drug and just decided to make that much more money. Pharmas, don't you know that raking in exhorbitant profits off the backs of the sick and dying is just evil?

Isn't this exactly the type of ripoff that will lead to nationalization of health care?

It's called cannibalism. All in the name of the scam called Intellectual Property.

Americans must take back their God given right to knowledge and the benefits that flow from it!
