Well, on pharmaceutical companies...

They charge more in America because they charge less everywhere else. They have to make up that profit in America to keep the profit margins where they are. Remember, these drug companies have a board of directors and shareholders to please.

If you have a 401k retirement plan, you may have some of it invested in a drug company.

Germany, France and others refuse to pay these drug companies the crazy prices they get away with in America. As a consequence, Americans pick up the tab. We basically subsidize cheaper medicine and medical equipment for the rest of the world.

It's a shame that millions don't know his message or understand that the two party system has been a sham for generations.

I agree that our two part system is a sham, but I can't get behind the idea of America becoming a socialist nation.

It will be the death of America as we know it.

He's talking about implementing specific social democratic ideas not becoming a socialist nation.

America is a narcissistic cesspool of selfish individuals worshipping money and their ego for fame and fortune.

I'm willing to give anything a shot at this point.

I think it's because European countries can bulk buy for the whole of the countries system rather than individual hospitals purchasing independently

It is a "Free Trade" Globalist Utopia now is it not?
If I want to purchase pills from some other company that can do it cheaper some where else in the world, then as a consumer I should have that choice.

But that is not what is happening is it?

The TPP is a protectionist trade policy for Corporations rather than a Free Trade Policy.

Meanwhile, these same corporations run to Communist Countries like China where workers have no protections or rights.

They groan about helping with the cost of higher education in this country and then hire H-1B's from other countries where the tax payers in those countries helped pay for higher education.

The Multinational Corporations are about as Anti American Anti Constitution as you can get.

The main vice of capitalism is greed and selfishness,
The antidote is a society where the members support each other, what a concept!
Does not matter what you call it if the intent is there.
