Truthfully, I think big pharma is probably as bad or worse than insurance companies.

They're horrible. IMO, they're legal drug dealers, and they don't care about the health of their customers any more than insurance companies do. They advertise prescription drugs on television like they're Kool-Aid, which IMO is a travesty.

Part of why drugs are so expensive in the US is that we don't have the price regulations that other countries do that keep costs down (it's also the reason why Big Pharma wants to make it illegal to buy prescription drugs from Canada--they're cheaper there because of price regulations we don't have). Now, apparently, the White House has made a deal with the Devil, which as much as I like the President and realise how desperately we need healthcare reform, makes me furious. It's like, I dunno, protection money or something.
