Re: Hey Zongsmith! Can you tell me how much "Big Pharma" costs us?

Overall healthcare costs here in the USA are flat-out CRIMINAL!

The premium for Medicare Part B is going up from $148.50 to $170.10 next year, an increase of 14.5%. Social Security is only going up 5.9%, and for most people their Medicare Part B premium is deducted from their Social Security. Supplemental and advantage plan premiums are going up also, I would guess in the neighborhood of five to ten percent.

and the US still has the worst health care in almost all the developed world.
The US health care truly is despicable; about the worst in the so called developed nations.

No one goes into bankruptcy over health care costs in any other first or second world nation.

Re: and the US still has the worst health care in almost all the developed world.
Indeed, the USA is no longer a developed country.

Minimal requirement of being developed: Health Care for ALL
