Since the previous last three American Presidents, they refused to bargain to make sensible agreements with our Pharmaceutical companies to bring down the prices for the medical drugs for patients, but that would also lower the stock holders’ dividends too. It is ironic that the same medical drug prices in many other countries are much lower than our drug prices in the United States.
Another fact is, their pharmaceutical drugs are precisely the same medical drugs as the American drugs. On the other hand, some of the drugs sold in America may be sourced from another country at the lower price but sold in America at the higher price to patients. Part of the problem is, some of our congressmen and women may have stock in the Pharmaceutical Industry and do not wish to participate in selling them at a lower price which would lower their stock dividends as profit. These are some of the business functions carried out by some of the citizens who can afford the stock prices.
Some of our elected officials who do not want their constituents to know they also have owned stock in the It seems that seems that some of our congress men and Women may also own stock in the Pharmaceutical Industry for years. They are getting richer daily. Now tell me how would any average citizen would have the opportunity to find out those facts? As well, why would anyone want others to know they are stock holders and are participating in maintaining the high prices for the American Pharmaceutical Drugs. Therefore, we have certain problems unsolved in America.
