After listening to Senator Sanders on today's show it seems that few people are aware that, contrary to laws preventing people from buying their drugs from other countries, Walmart and several other major pharmacies purchase their prescription drugs from a manufacturer in India. I read this company has a checkered history. Congress passed the law against individuals going to Canada or Mexico because people had no guarantee that the drugs were safe for consumers. But apparently commercial pharmacies can tell at a glance that the drugs they import from a manufacturer with a bad history are safe.

I have been taking a drug to control acid which is made by a company in India. It is the generic that the pharmacy I go to supplies.

The "Morally Bankrupt" GOP

The Congressional Budget Office has released its score of the Senate Republican healthcare bill.

According to the CBO, the so-called Better Care Reconciliation Act would cause 22 million people to lose their health insurance.

Which - when you really think about it - is pretty weird.
