Good luck on getting this passed the republicans will never go for it. As a person who lives in the state of Texas. Doctors use to be able to give samples to patients who could not afford their medications. The jerk Rick Perry was paid off by the drug companies because they weren’t getting a big enough piece of the pie. So Perry as Governor decided doctors could no longer dispense samples to patients. Pharmacies only. This really made doctors angry. People die because they can’t afford medicines! Rick Perry has always been a controversial no good piece of work! In addition to the sample ban. He also tried to make it mandatory by law that all children at the age of 12 get a HPV vaccination or they wouldn’t be allowed to register for school. The HPV vaccination is not a bad thing at all. But the evangelical community blew a gasket and he backed down. You know, ABSTINENCE is the evangelical communities motto. 🙄 We desperately need to get big pharmaceutical companies out of government. They hold too much power over our politicians. They poison us with some drugs and help with others. I would prefer no negotiating with drug companies. Done by politicians I would prefer healthcare for all. But it should not be negotiated by a politician! I hope all of you in favor of having a politician negotiate with big Pharma never get a serious Illness. insulin is already sky high due to greed and people die everyday. Not to mention the cost of cancer drugs.
