Harris vows to ’put people over profit’ in prescription drug plan

Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris unveiled a plan on Tuesday to crack down on pharma companies which overcharge for prescription drugs. Harris said her proposal would dramatically lower drug costs by allowing the federal government to set fair prices for what companies can charge.

"Put people over profits"... sounds like a recipe for scarcity to me. Who is supposed to provide this care at a loss?

You know what else reduces the cost of drugs? Putting it under a Medicare-for-All system that costs less for everyone because of how many healthy people it covers and the lack of premiums and deductibles.

My grandpa takes 26 pills every single dad and my grandma takes half as many as he does. They rather have a system that actually helps them improves healths not shove pills down your throat. They haven't seen a Doctor in God's know how long, every specialist he goes to they only let them see a Nurse practitioner, and they don't help shit. Low drug cost sounds good for a small short term effect, but what about the long term what about actually healing people.
