Since a complete overhaul reform of the health care system now seems in doubt, thanks to a lack of the required fierce resolve on the part of the Obama administration, talk of banning or closely regulating prescription drug advertising is an encouraging sign.

The mess has been spawned by government meddling in the healthcare market not the "for-profit" nature of it. Get the government out of it and it will work much better.

While I agree that the ads are too much, do you really think we would have the innovation in drugs and care overall if it wasn't for the profit motive??? Just think about who works harder, the mailman whistling down the street from 10-3 or the UPS driver busting his hump driving over the mountain from 7am to 7 pm. Now tell me where the innovation and productivity comes from, the public sector or the private sector???

Do you know anything about economics or capitalism???
