The Great American Drug Price Ripoff
Buying the same drugs you buy now, only at 1/10th the price

(REGIONAL) – Hard core readers of the Chronicle know that every chance we get, we like to point out what an ongoing consumer ripoff the ungodly high drug prices in this country are .
The outlandishly high prices we Americans pay for drugs – when drug manufacturers in this country sell the same drugs for MUCH LOWER COST to Canadians and others - is an ongoing crime in our opinion and somebody should be doing jail time for it, as in certain members of Congress.
Go across the border into Canada and you’ll pay anywhere from 50% to 90% less for the same drugs you get down here in the states. You are, in essence, subsidizing the low cost that Canadians pay for their drugs – the very same drugs made in the same manufacturing facilities.
The fact that Americans are not rioting in the streets over this is proof positive we’ve all become fearful little sheep, resigned to being led by the noses into poverty by high drug and other medical costs in America.
With that in mind, we thought you’d enjoy a May 17th tweet by Senator Bernie Sanders. Click the image at upper right to enlarge and then...read it and weep kids.
As you can see by the tweet we, all of us, are suckers of the highest order for putting up with this ripoff year after year after year.
