  •  Thanks, DWG, for stopping by no matter when. (0+ / 0-)

    (Sometimes these discussions do persist for a couple of days.)

    I assume that your son will be on this medication indefinitely? Thank goodness that coverage caps will soon be ended.

    Big Pharma is definitely responsible for a great portion of the health care cost climb in the U.S. There's been relatively little attention paid to that reality, but it persists.

    I agree with your other points as well. We have deeply distorted priorities for research and other social expenditures in this country, and the lack of controls on health care profits is shameful.

    Your observation about most doctors being captured in effect by larger systems is also an important one, something that most outside of the system don't realize at all (and thus can't appreciate the impact of it).

    I hope that your son's health holds steady, at least, and improves in the best case. Good to see you here.

    Some DKos series & groups worth your while: Black Kos, Native American Netroots, KosAbility, Monday Night Cancer Club. If you'd like to join the Motor City Kossacks, send me a Kosmail.
