The federal benefit does not help elders. It helps the pharmaceutical companies, who make incredible profits from people who believe they must stay on a drug for the rest of their lives. The medical community doesn't offer cures, you just take a pill FOREVER MORE. This is disgusting. Our elders are being pickled in chemicals and deprived of the health advice that would help them get better. The federal government is paying for it.
This is just one more way in which our government is controlled by corporations. The corporations are insuring their profits through our laws, and at the expense of our people. At the expense of my mother.
This is sickening.
