Isn't PHARMCO, the pharmaceutical lobby, in bed with the Republicans and holding up proper healthcare for a country that ranks low in healthcare standards...including over-prescibing medications

Sorry flaming, but I don't see where this has anything to do with political arguments about Healthcare. This woman robbed the store. The Republicans nor the Democrats robbed the store.

BEOWULF: Sad?- Yes. PHARMCO?- Nazi style influence. Politics?- Of course. Traditional, conservative Americans need to scorch the politicals (Dem & Rep) this election - If they danced w/the Devil, make them pay the fiddler. There is so much wrong - this woman needs federal charges & time. 'Tis A shame that many fall victim to our screwed up system, but rules are rules.
