There is a lot of discussion about how “divided” our nation is and, on many issues, that is absolutely true. But on one of the most important matters facing our country the American people – Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Progressives, Conservatives – could not be more united. And that is the need to take on the unprecedented corporate greed of the pharmaceutical industry and to substantially lower the outrageously high price of prescription drugs.
Today, millions of Americans are making the unacceptable choice between feeding their families or buying the medicine they need. Seniors from Vermont to Alaska are forced to split pills in half and many have died because they did not have enough money to fill their prescriptions.
All over this country, the American people are asking why it is that they pay, by far, the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs?
Why is it that nearly one out of every four adults in America cannot afford their prescription medication?
Pharma industry profits are in the billions, but many Americans can’t even afford their own medicine. (iStock)
