Ten Principles For Affordable Healthcare Reform

This is the sixth of an ten part installment about ten principles that can be followed to create a true reform of the American healthcare structure that will be of little relative cost to the taxpayer. The previous four are readily available on the website and I hope you to subscribe to the blogs so you can receive them in a timely manner.

Ten Principles For Affordable Healthcare Reform

8. Large American pharmaceutical companies must decide at what end of the drug development / delivery to patent pipeline they wish the American taxpayer to subsidize. They cannot have it both ways.

First, let me say that there has been a free-for all demonization of the drug companies or the more pernicious appellation Big Pharma. Large pharmaceutical companies provide jobs, support community services and charities. They provide the drugs and treatments that save lives, make lives better and longer. The very people for whom they provide political financial support have demonized them. Such portrayals and rank hypocrisy serve no noble purpose, no public good.

That said, it is not the place of the American taxpayer to underwrite the cost of prescription drugs for the very socialized healthcare countries that mock our healthcare model, and us as well, while at the same time to become the victims of cost shifting by the very drug companies whose product creation we subsidize. Simply put, if large American pharmaceutical companies are writing off the considerable expense, and risk, of research and development of a new drug against their profit, then they should not be allowed to raise the cost of those same drugs to the American public to cover the lower prices they willingly accept from the aforementioned socialized countries. Peter is, in essence being robbed to pay Paul. In the United States, we should not be paying more than any government of a socialized healthcare country pays for the same medications, especially if we underwrote the development of that same medication.

If such medically socialized countries wish to have first-line drugs and treatments accessible to their citizenry, then they must be willing to pay more for the superior product or risk having even higher mortality rates and greater productivity loses from the resultant deaths and illness that would follow the loss of up-to-date treatment.

The American people should no longer pay twice for the privilege of suffering insult from the mouths of those very people they subsidize.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
