Who Will Bail Out P.I.G. (Pharmaceutical Insurance Group)?

Who Will Bail Out the P.I.G. (Pharmaceutical Insurance Group)?

Less than 1 year after the AIG bailout, the pharmaceutical companies want to "reform" healthcare so that everyone can get prescriptions for their products. Furthermore, while the use of antidepressants has recently increased 2 fold since 1996, the use of psychiatrists has declined. People use antidepressents now for back pain, fatigue, nerve pain, and sleep too. Is Brave New World's "Soma" here to stay now. Are we all going to be coerced into taking it? Is Big Pharma going to use the U.S. Govenment in a pyramid insurance scam now? Will there be a change in how the drug companies are to be held accountable for the over-use of psychotropic drugs?

Clearly, Michael Jackson could afford prescriptions and medical professionals, but his addictions to the prescriptions killed him. I, for one, have no intention of following Michael Jackson on the "road to hell" with Xanax.

Healthcare reform is needed. But we need to be careful that our government does not plan on controling global warming with prescription drug abuse.

In recent weeks, the Obama Whitehouse has been dubbing healthcare reform, "Health Insurance Reform".;_ylt=As08y8D8.KuAFWf9FOtKgJqs0NUE;_ylu=X3oDMTM2ZTYzaWNkBGFzc2V0A2FwLzIwMDkwODA0L3VzX29iYW1hX2hlYWx0aF9jYXJlBGNwb3MDOARwb3MDNQRwdANob21lX2Nva2UEc2VjA3luX2hlYWRsaW5lX2xpc3QEc2xrA3doaXRlaG91c2V1cw--

Yes. That number in the household effect on Carbon Exchange costs at the Gore website should be looked at again.

Eli Lilly is already restructuring its sales force.

What pressures have caused that (Sarcastic)?

"But Lilly spokesman Ed Sagebiel says this buyout is not a cost-cutting move.

He said it is part of sales restructuring, which will begin in mid-November, to connect sales representatives "more deeply with customers and increase accountability."

The new structure will feature smaller territories, each with one sales rep who has deep expertise in a treatment area, Sagebiel said."

Theresa Howard, USA TODAY

"NEW YORK — Prescription drug advertising has never had it easy, but lately the $4.3 billion ad sector has come under attack from lawmakers who are trying to get the ads off the airwaves."

AIG, after all, is a London domiciled global corporation that was bailed out at the Americans expense. And it is these "progresssive" Constitutional violations that have nothing to do with free enterprise or capitalism that has placed this nation and its people now as "servant of the master" London banks who are now quite obviously "sticking it" to the American people for all its worth.
