Agreed. Prescription drug abuse is epidemic. I read an article the other day that doctors also get kick-backs for installing artificial hips, knees and spinal components. There has always been questions raised about organ donation. The doctors could not charge for the organs, but they can for the surgery to install and remove. This is also a disgusting situation.

You know this. Enough with the
coulda, woulda, shouldas.
When the greatest country in the world
has the 27th best medical care in the
world, something's broken and it's not
President Obama. It's our bought-and-paid-for
Congress who are puppets for big pharm
and the insurance pirates.
Is the ACA going to change this? One benefit is you can't be turned down for Chronic or pre-existing conditions, but at what cost? I believe the individual mandate needs delayed while the site is repaired, and not with a bandaid, but actually functioning with accurate figures. And information safety. I also believe that the "questionable" issues like doctors opting out, deductibles, and age related refusal to treat are addressed. Too much of the ACA is hazy in it's application.

Obesity is a problem, but how do you think you can control it? You can't police every candy bar being fed to children, every plate of greasy food being served. Who do you think the Government is? It is us, and if we want a candy bar, or beans, and ham or whatever, it is our God given right to eat whatever we want. No government in our history has been as invasive as this one. They will use anything as a diversion to keep us from watching them steal everything not nailed down.

Really? How do doctors receive money back when they prescribe medication? I know many and not one I know has ever received a dime. Please explain.

Lots of good things in ACA, a lot of things are questionable. I still say that doing something is better than nothing. Thousands of new insurance policies have been purchased since the roll out. That's good but they need to get the website straightened out much quicker. Hell, Clinton created FEMA and rebuilt an entire highway in San Francisco in a year after their horrible earthquake. God I miss that man.

Explain what? This is common knowledge available to the public. If you bothered to read or do research instead of letting FOX news spoon feed you your daily hate news, you would know that Medicare/medicaid pays 6% rebate directly to the doctor for prescribing meds so the more expensive meds are prescribed in place of lower priced generic meds that do the exact same thing. They also get kickbacks for artificial hips, knees etc.

If you supposedly know so many doctors, how could you not know this information which has been on the news for months? Oh, right. FOX news didn't cover it. Shocker. They were busy covering the Kanye/Kardashian drama I guess or are they still looking for President Obama's birth certificate?????????? lmao

Pssst....jump in your 1960's time machine and join us in 2013, Le Jimcrow.

The democrats aren't the KKK anymore, the GOP is.

Dems passed the Civil Rights Act of 1965, oh, and then we elected the first black President in American History in 2008.

Sadly, Byrd's dead but you just KKKeep trying to keep hope alive for other republiklan racists. They call themselves teabaggers now. Enjoy!

Common knowledge to whom? I've never heard of such garbage but nothing surprises me about the govt. Speaking of the govt.....if this abuse did happen, why would you be so excited to embrace oscumma care?

In private practice, doctors write scripts based upon what they think is best for the patient. They may believe the most current med on the market is best or maybe that's the only option available. Others will automatically click generic if it is available. Some insurance will only pay for generics. There is no way a doctor could get a 'kick back' as you say.

Certainly, gullible sheeple will believe anything especially what the liberal media wants to feed them. After all....they want you to trust the govt......socialized health care so why not fabricate some nonsense?

Doctors have been targets and continue to be so. Drug companies have called on docs, given them samples so they prescribe their drug over a competitor. It's been done for decades. So the doctor gives out samples to his patients and gets feedback good or bad. Patients benefit because most of the time, they get the entire script for FREE! Others will give out a starter pack, making the prescription much less for the patient. One day, some money grubbing attorneys figure out a way to make money off of this practice by making it appear as if the doctors and pharmacy companies are in some sort secret pact. In recent years, you will see much less sampling because of this and really it's the patients who are losing. I could get most of my allergy meds in samples that would get me by for over half a year. Today, not so much. I could sample new products, old products and decide which ones worked best for me. Now, I have to buy them and throw them out, if I don't like it. Seems to me that is better for the drug companies.

Money grubbing attorneys have also tried to exploit a few bad apples and apply their actions to the entire profession. The media picks and chooses which people will become society's villans. Doctors are a perfect mark since the libs want to sell the sheeple on govt. healthcare.

Consultants are necessary because they are responsible for using their expertise to improve products. These consultants are used in medicine but other areas as well. These consultants should be compensated for their time and expertise and yet the public gets exaggerated and distorted information. The media knows sheeple are not very bright. You'll get partial information and think you fully understand what you've been told to believe. The ignorant are always too quick to believe because they are easily manipulated. They don't know how to think for themselves. They are also so filled with class envy, that it makes them feel better to demonize those they are jealous of. Doctors have also worn a target for this reason

OMG, when Obama looked America in the eye, and said, "If you like your Doctor you can keep your Doctor, and if you like your insurance you can keep your insurance." it was a bald faced lie. He knew at that very moment, he knew at least 14 million people would lose both their Doctor, and their insurance plan. It was designed like that, because the Government needed those people to pay for the old, and the sick, and the young aren't going to touch Obamacare. What a disgusting POS. And we are supposed to respect that pitiful little nothing man? No way.

Obama is finally being seen as the liar he has always been. People will get sick of the very sight of the man knowing that if he is on tv or the radio, quoted in the paper, or even rumored to have moved his lips, everyone will know everything that falls out of his mouth is a lie....always has been! No credibility and a failed healthcare plan with a lack of ability to even hire an American company with a track record of success to create a website for his #1 accomplishment. What a buffoon!!!

blah blah blah
yada yada yada...
and a thousand keystrokes later,
I'm right. Doctors get
rebates on prescriptions
so instead of prescribing cheaper,
generic meds, they prescribe expensive
meds.

I accept your apology.
