If this makes me a Socialist, then I am proud!
I picked up my scrip at Walgreen's today. I paid $15 for the Clopidogrel tablets (90 days supply) tablets which should have cost $419 -- this enormously reduced cost is thanks to my superb (Episcopal) Church Pension Fund coverage.
Many American citizens who need Clopidogrel (especially those without Insurance coverage) would be faced with an annual cost of nearly $1600 for this essential medication, but I pay only $60 per annum.
Doesn't seem fair, wise, or just. Especially because the cost for the poorer citizens eats up a high percentage of their meager enough incomes, long before paying for rent, food, and transportation to and from work.
We clearly need an equalizing national health system which provides the best care at the lowest cost for all citizens.
But you, my republican friends, will protest that such a system would be "socialist" (so it must be bad).
Oh phoney baloney; get your mind and act together! Move beyond your unintelligent and politically biased prejudices, and vote and work for that which is best for all Americans.
