Everybody in Favor of $100,000 Cancer Drugs, Raise your Hands.

Hum, I see no hands raised. Those Republicans just want all Americans dead!

That is why King Barry will rule until 2022!

Long live the King!

(I hope that the Royal Family has access to the $100,000 Drugs)

A group of more than 120 cancer researchers and physicians took the unusual step this week of publishing a research paper taking aim at pharmaceutical prices they see as exorbitant and unjustifiable.
Drug companies are profiteering, the doctors say, by charging whatever the market will bear for medications that patients literally can't live without.
The paper, published online in the American Society of Hematology's medical journal Blood, analyzes and criticizes the cost of drugs used to treat chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), a rare type of cancer that responds very well to drug therapy. The 10-year survival rate for CML patients now tops 80% for those who receive targeted drugs -- but the annual price tag for the treatment is usually in the six-figure range.
Those prices bear little relation to what the drugs actually cost to develop and produce, the doctors say. As an example, they zero in on the case of imatinib, a drug sold by Novartis (NVS) as Gleevec (in the U.S.) or Glivec (in most international markets).

Because white folks and Asians do all the research and have all the brain power, cancer drugs should only be for us. Why help the dumb blacks who only strive to be basketball players, rappers and drug dealers?

No integrity poster of many names,

Does somebody just "drop a Quarter in your slot", pull your chain, and unleash you to spew ignorance on good people?

You are like one of my Grand Daughters Dolls, press your belly and you say the same 2 things every time.

Grow a pair and develop some personal shame!

Now they should protest all those Pharmaceutical companies that pop up in those third world countries who hate Americans and copy the brand drugs with their new generic drugs after the patents lapse on the brand drugs.
They are not the same regardless of how they keep telling the public they are. They may have a couple of the same ingredients but cannot be exact because that would be a copy right violation. Forcing people on generics is a crime. If a medication works for the patient they should NOT be forced to change because some person decides to start a company and make a generic.
With all the hate for Americans in these countries, drugs shipped in could be dangerous to Americans Health. Our Government should Ban drugs from other countries.
