I personally think a Socialism type of healthcare is better because in the capitalism approach results in profits being more important than the
patient and I believe that is an unethical practice. There are new drugs that could possibly help those with cancer, diabetes, hepatitis, and HIV but
many of those patients can not afford the new drugs because they are too expensive and will likely suffer more and/or die because they have to rely on
older cheaper treatments.

I don't think you folks understand socialism. Look at Canada and France. They have socialist health care and the people are suffering. It wouldn't
work here for those same reasons. Socialism Does NOT work. never did - never will. It's not the idea of socialism that's the problem, it's the
current socialist structure that's the problem.
Capitalism likewise is no good because it, like socialism has a failed structure. Capitalism is based in democracy which is a scheme the Founding
Fathers hated to the core. It has no checks and balances to ensure everyone has a level playing field. Like in a democracy the large companies can be
on top controlling the flow of information and resources to those less fortunate - couple that with being in bed with our corrupt US Government and it
gets way worse for the people trying to get ahead through capitalism.
I think the solution lies in a new approach altogether. We don't have that now, so we are doomed.
So India is making patented medicines on purpose because they need to keep the cost down to treat their people. Bravo India !!
Big Pharma should NOT be in the medicine business at all - thats to the discredit of our government and messed up capitalistic ideas. For Big pharma
to stop India, is Criminal because they only care about money - not human lives - they do not for all the dirty money they have, Count The Cost - the
real cost, the cost of human life and suffering they created by withholding the medicines that could save a person - and for what.. something as
worthless as US money.. it disgusts me. Government should By The People be incontrol of medicines so the price can stay cheap and the medicine
available - caring people who get it - those are the only folks that should be allowed to produce medicine and not for profit !
I hope most people are too smart to fall for this and Big Pharma gets nowhere. This would be the best outcome for all concerned.
