    It’s about flipping time! I know ahead of time what my Jordan retro shoes are going to retail for. And then, I know what the markup is if I don’t secure my spot in line. Same should be true of my meds.

      P.S. Read up about the health insurance program for Whole Foods and Safeway stores. Both companies required all medical providers to post prices. Both companies gave their employees cash to fund large annual deductibles. Any money they didn’t spend by the end of the year, the employee got to keep.

      And guess what? Comparison shopping by employees for routine procedures like MRIs, blood work, x-rays, and even knee replacements (if the employee wanted to do so), all of this caused prices and costs to fall and employee satisfaction to go up.

      And who opposes this? The Left, who think we are all children who can’t make our own decisions and need to be led by our Leftist superiors in Washington.

    Guess drug companies pressuring the doctors to prescribe their drug didn’t work well enough, so now they want the patients to also pressure the doctors. I would rather leave the decision about whether this drug would work for me up to my doctor, and not be constantly bombarded with these ads every night.

      Right. Your doctor isn’t pressured by hot, young Pharma reps. to push the drugs Big Pharma. wants you to use . . . doctors are always honest and true and never, ever self-interested.

    The pharma companies will just stop advertising. No one is going to place the amount of my chemo drug, Ibrance, on the TV at an average price of $11K per month. They would have to be crazy! It will not bring the results that government is looking for.

      And that would be another victory for the Trump Administration.

        The victory by the Trump Administration will never be recognized / acknowledged by liberals who actually want drug prices to drop – to punish “the purveyors of pharma who are earning outrageous profits”. Some may actually try to attribute the action to pressure by liberals, or as an indirect result of ACA by BHO.
