Update on Cost of medicine

Just checked the cost of Lumigan (eye drops for glaucoma control) in the US of A and Canada. At Walgreen, the cost for 7.5 ml is $623.10. In Canada, the cost is $69.35 for 9 ml. Oh...our Congress forbids us from buying medicine from Canada. Oh...it is also our Congress who wails, moans and yammers about the tragedy of the high cost of drugs in America. Hypocritical bastards each and every one.

" A federal judge on Monday

" A federal judge on Monday stopped a Trump administration initiative that would have required drugmakers to reveal the sticker price of their drugs in television ads."
Anyone following this? The requirement of posting drug prices on TV ads would make prices more competitive.

It's because both parties are bought and paid for by big pharma.

Trump (may peace be upon him

Trump (may peace be upon him for he hath saved civilization from Hillary and exposed the perfidy and corruption in the DOJ, FBI, IRS, Congress, NAS, all Democrats, NAACP, Universities and professors and students, some Republicans, the Liberal Courts and Judges at al) has opened to door for Americans to import medicines from Canada and other countries. No other government employee has attempted this. Strangely, it is the puke filled Republicans who have been against this simple but brilliant move.

Just another reason to love this President....perhaps the best ever!
