Rumble - Should drug companies work for public health or private profit?

Gianno Caldwell, Caldwell Strategic Consulting & Tommy Christopher, The Daily Banter & Charles Sauer, The Market Institute joins Thom Hartmann. Dr. Leonard Saltz - who is chief of gastrointestinal oncology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center - slammed the pharmaceutical industry for the sharp rise in cancer drug prices over the last decade. Dr. Saltz explained part of the problem: “cancer-drug prices are not related to the value of the drug. Prices are based on what has come before and what the seller believes the market will bear.” And that’s because our current patent system gives state-sponsored monopolies to pharmaceutical companies by way of American patent law.

Rumble - Jeb Bush Is Screwed Up About Social Security

Gianno Caldwell, Caldwell Strategic Consulting & Tommy Christopher, The Daily Banter & Charles Sauer, The Market Institute joins Thom Hartmann. Isn’t it time to fix our system so that Americans can retire younger and we can open more job positions for a younger workforce? Shouldn't we be talking about lowering the Social Security retirement age instead of raising it? It'll open up all kinds of jobs for young people, and thus strengthen the system because they'll all be paying Social Security taxes.
