I enjoy and agree with much of Ann's commentary, but she's holding too tight to the party line about so-called healthcare issues. The drug companies are cash machines with incredible profits who sell many drugs cheaply to other nations, and sock it to us in the US for, what being US taxpayers? Not content to have drugs run into their generic "due date", they are somehow extending their patents, and as a result, screwing people over on that basis. Of course, many of the drugs were brought to market on cherry-picked research, waved past the FDA, who is more concerned people may be benefiting from a botanical instead of suffering from the side effects of a dangerous pharmaceutical, which is the result of the FDA being a watchdog.
