Excerpt from the article:

“The (Affordable Care Act) represents a dramatic transformation in the fortunes of pharmaceutical companies in what is the world’s largest market for prescription drugs,” said Joshua Owide, head of GlobalData’s industry dynamics team in a statement to Forbes.”

This $35 billion in ADDITIONAL PROFIT will work against aggregate demand and is nothing more than pure waste compared to a policy of Medicare/caid for all with a sensible plan to provide the program's drugs. The government incurs this additional "profit" cost but it provides nothing in terms of goods and services to the 99%. It is Profit - it goes to the 1%. In fact it puts pressure on the 99%'s economy to perform worse than it already is.

Using the countries resources for you and parties own gain isn't the same thing as offering the 99% a representative government that results in a good society.

END OBAMACARE IN FAVOR OF MEDICAID/CARE FOR ALL - STOP THE WASTE. OBAMACARE WAS WRITTEN BY SPECIAL INTEREST FOR SPECIAL INTEREST AT THE TAXPAYER'S EXPENSE.

Does Trump "Tweet" When His Staff Says No?

Thom plus logo Lev Parnas tells the story of how Donald Trump fired ambassador Marie Yovanovitch at least "four or five times," and that they were afraid that he would "fire her with a tweet." This is not the first time we have heard from White House insiders that the president often gives irrational or stupid orders that his staff then ignores.
