We need to change our healthcare system to a healthcare for all system that allows everyone to have healthcare, focuses on really helping people, preventative care and on cures.
The current U.S. healthcare system focuses on making huge profits by ripping sick people off. One of the realities of the marketplace is that big pharma companies have a monopoly on every non-generic drug they produce. This results in monopoly pricing that allows U.S. companies to artificially inflate medicine prices for astronomical profits and patients either have to pay or not have access to the medicines they need to survive.
We must focus on preventive care, cures and the advancement of the human race. We need to stop wasting hundreds of billions of dollars a year on profiteering, huge executive compensation packages, and outrageous administrative costs.
We pay the more for healthcare than any other country.
- Allow Medicare to negotiate with the big drug companies to lower prescription drug prices with the Medicare Drug Price Negotiation Act.
- Allow patients, pharmacists, and wholesalers to buy low-cost prescription drugs from Canada and other industrialized countries with the Affordable and Safe Prescription Drug Importation Act.
- Cut prescription drug prices in half, with the Prescription Drug Price Relief Act, by pegging prices to the median drug price in five major countries: Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Japan.
