Earlier this summer, we told you about the drug companies' efforts to protect their enormous profits
as Congress tries to find $10 billion in savings from the Medicaid program. There is widespread agreement in Washington that Medicaid pays too much for prescriptions drugs and that savings can be found in this area. But if the drug companies have their way, those savings will come at the expense of the sickest, most vulnerable Americans while Big Pharma's profits go untouched.
To draw attention to this outrageous choice of profits over people, Families USA has produced a Flash animation called People or Profits: The Game Show. It is a satirical look at the choice many in Congress seem willing to make: protecting Big Pharma's profits while cutting health care for millions of vulnerable Americans. You can view the animation here:
Please take action and pass it on to everyone you know!
