  1. Half the people on prescription pills, don't even need them… and drug prices would be much lower if people weren't stupid enough to have supported getting government so involved in our healthcare. Democrats in Government is what's hurting people… Not the drug companies. They are just like any other company. They employee people, they create a product that people want… but, over-regulation has caused the need for prices to increases.

  2. Greed. Your sickness is their profit. No ones life should be looked at over the top of a dollar sign. Government (we the people our taxes) should cover research, cures and medications. I don't want some careless CEO telling me I need to die because I can't afford 2000 additional (not covering doctors, test and etc.) a month. Get with the times America. Healthy Americans means more people at work which mean more taxes which means better schools, training and pay for law enforcement, better education and less people on disability for illnesses that were treatable but got to bad due to poor healthcare.

    We are in an system that profits from our suffering rather incarceration, drug addiction, sickness or all of the above. Wakeup. Spend that 8 billion for the wall ensuring Americans are healthy.

  3. With CBD making it possible for so many people to reduce their need for medications the drug companies will have to find a way to maintain their solvency, keep share prices up and keep their profitability where it is. Funny how G.W. Pharmaceuticals is hanging a price tag of $33,000 a year for a seizure med based on CBD which has no medicinal value. Hypocrisy at its finest. Depending on the form of epilepsy, a person might be able to accomplish the same results for a few hundred a year at a nutrition science store, shhhhhh.

  6. I have a friend right now who can't afford an inhaler for their son who has asthma. They don't need to make billions of dollars off sick people. People will die because of this. No matter what party your in. Trump deregulated everything. They never should have done that.

  7. Obama made a deal with Drug Companies They could set their own prices if they supported Obamacare or they would be taxed and taxed and regulated.

  8. Allowing huge corporations to contribute to politicians fundraising was the dumbest thing this country ever did. You reap what you sow. Enjoy your pills.

  9. The drug companies are making way, way too much money. People who are dependent on medications should not have to pay high amounts of money for them. Drugs, doctors, and hospitals should all be run by the federal government. I don't think it's right for big businesses to profit from other people being sick. NBC's show New Amsterdam is a great show, about a hospital that isn't run for profit but run to suit the patients. All hospitals in real life should be run like the one on New Amsterdam.

  10. So how is the Republican deregulation policies on free markets working? That give Corp Wall street monopoly control markets

  11. I am not an American, but if you are, just a little research will reveal that America spends almost twice the amount, pro rated of its GDP on health care. www.healthsystemtracker.org. That is twice the amount of virtually every other country on earth. And all other countries have single payer arrangements. The same care, same medications, no health insurance payments, no co-pays. Someone, somewhere, in America is making a whole ton of money from your illnesses and accidents.

  12. Big Pharma charges Americans much more than they charge people in other countries.
    Profit over people.
    Pharmaceutical companies should be nationalized because they are Predatory.

  13. Watch my video and help a Disabled Veteran before I die. All I want to to be treated like a human, and not like a dog. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RbDPYNHsh0Q

  14. We need New Government Regulations to stop these ridiculous Automatic price increases. 6 percent is excessive!
    Shame on Big Pharma !
