UP THE MEDS

They want to
Keep you sick…
That’s my belief
Not to cure you…
They want to fill you
With every new pill…
Their motto must be
“Up the MEDS”

      Along with insurance companies and hospital systems. We needed single payer to get out of this mess, but we’re supposed to lump it, I guess. :-/

    Once upon a time we saw the Dr. When we were sick. Now we are in the office all the time, and nothing we take is because we feel sick. Clever.

      If you want to talk about something being rigged, look no further than the medical-industrial complex…the drug and medical equipment companies, insurance companies, and huge hospital systems. At least some doctors hate it, but they are small cogs in the machine. And I shouldn’t let the TV networks go unmentioned. They profit enormously from all the grotesque drug ads that interrupt the evening news, etc.

    The real question is this: Are we healthier. I do think so. Still, the insurance system needs reform. I don’t mind the ads so much, but I wish TV could be free again.
