There's a new TV commercial asking us to call our Congressperson & tell them not to allow Medicare to negotiate drug prices with big pharma. I'm sure you've seen it.

Of course it's all BS - sort of a "Don't f with us & nobody gets hurt". The national health systems in the UK, Germany, France, Australia, etc, etc all negotiate drug prices with providers.

In some cases there's no real negotiation. The health system dictatates the price on a take it or leave it basis. And in almost every case the drug company takes it because they know they can screw Americans on the price.

And in all cases those countries get better health results for less money.
