    they could save a shitload of money by not paying so much to Big Pharma in the first place and allow Medicare to negotiate wholesale drug prices. Or at least buy from Canada. But yes, this part does mean a couple of billion more goes to Big Pharma that from the government that would have come out of people's pockets. I suppose that's progress of a sort.

    •  if we could do that (1+ / 0-)

      unfortunately we have to live in the real world where that wasn't possibility.

        than you might believe, now that the GOPers have thrown all in with deficit.debt reduction.

        I expect that we'll see this issue at the forefront very soon, and the GOP will (again) look rather idiotic as they fight against it...for too long, the Republicans have been having it both ways, claiming to be for the little guy while working against the little guy at every turn. Now they're getting called on it.

        For too many years, they've been decrying the deficit while padding the pockets of big business with taxpayer dollars. Now they're getting called on it.

        •  And thank God for it (0+ / 0-)

          I'm still really nervous about the next election though.  We cannot let another Republican President appoint Ginsburg's successor on the Court.
