Actually, we, as in the US, pay for a HUGE portion of all pharma and medical research. And then, on TOP of that, we turn around and pay top dollar via MEDICARE, MEDICAID, VA, etc. to use it. They're getting us twice while selling at reduced prices to other countries. So, Ollie, we already ARE paying for it. Just that our politicians (from BOTH sides of the aisle) are in way too deep to big corporations.
As for your ideas, Mr. onoffonoffon, the same ideas you espouse (lower prices) could be accomplished with a single payer system and a national formulary. And no, I`m NOT wrong, and yes, I DO know exactly what I`m talking about.
