PrescriptionÂ medicine is one of the biggest mark ups in the history of the world.Â We’re talking up to 5,000%.Â Yes, you read that right.Â Â And it’s not just the markups that plague us.Â It’s the fact that there are tons of companies that can cure many diseases but make way more money by allowing you to live with a disease by treating it medicinally rather than curing it altogether.Â Â If you think that’s not happening then think again.Â Â I’m convinced there are cures for cancer but it’s way better financially for these companies to make us just live longer with the disease.
That there is a product with a big fat label on it that says it can kill you is mind boggling to me.Â That any country would allow that is mind boggling to me.Â That so many people still smoke despite these warnings makes me want to move to another planet.Â Â Tobacco companies should be killed and yet you almost can’t blame them for exploiting our stupidity.Â What will it take for people to quit?Â 20 dollars a pack?Â Seriously.Â 30?Â This one I almost blame more on us than them.
How in the world is it legal for premiums to go up every single year but a considerable amount?Â Seriously.Â How in the hell is this possible?Â And honestly I’m not even into some of the main issues that our country debates about every single day.Â Â I’m just referring to my own bills which are obscenely high.Â Â Shouldn’t health be a priority in our country and not a luxury?
