re: I'm a free enterprise guy, but something has to be done about drug prices - I B Freeman
You boys fail to see the forest for the trees. Everything you guys are talking about comes back to the fact that the government is the SOURCE of the profits of the drug industry buying over 50% of their production. They assure the industry huge profits by over paying for products and by creati...

re: Fiorina is right on Crony Capitalism and big government - I B Freeman
Rex you are wrong as usual. Net neutrality was a special interest bill and so was ObamaCare. They started out sounding like bills to hurt providers but by the time they passed their opponents were happy because barriers to entry were created and profitable, protective regulation was put in place....

[quote] The demand is so inelastic that people will buy no matter the price[/quote] Sort of. The entities buying them will buy no matter what the price as mandated by our health care laws. All the more reason to get government out of healthcare purchasing....

[quote]If I don't see adequate competition, I am with you on this one. Free market needs competition to work, and where competition isn't there, there needs to be price elasticity. The drug market neither has competition nor demand elasticity[/quote] Because of government....

re: I'm a free enterprise guy, but something has to be done about drug prices - I B Freeman
2008 was when Obamacare passed---the biggest screwing of those that take care of themselves in the history of the USA government. Drug companies, insurance companies and democrats did it to us. We should end their cartel by: 1) allowing any drug approved in any western country to immediatel...

I disagree on the money. The Kochs advocate for the tax payer and the citizen. I have yet to see them take a position that simply benefits their company unlike Soros who trades on the actions of government. ...

re: I'm a free enterprise guy, but something has to be done about drug prices - I B Freeman
The government needs to intervene in health care and drug business by ending their involvement in pricing. If tomorrow medicare was done through subscription and people were given vouchers to buy it services would go up and prices would collapse. Why anyone would oppose that--it was Ryan's idea t...

Fiorina is right on Crony Capitalism and big government - I B Freeman
[quote]“The dirty little secret of that regulation, which is the same dirty little secret of Obamacare or Dodd-Frank or all of these other huge complicated pieces of regulation or legislation, is that they don’t get written on their own,” she said. “They get written in part by lobbyists for big comp...

re: I'm a free enterprise guy, but something has to be done about drug prices - I B Freeman
Anyone that thinks the drug industry is a free enterprise business is naive. It is the biggest form of socialism and crony capitalism in the USA. The drug industry loves medicare, medicaid and the FDA. Contrary to your thesis that government needs to intervene on drug prices, the drug marke...

re: Killing The Motion Picture Tax Credit Is Going To Be Nightmarishly Difficult - I B Freeman
[quote]I am still OK with it if they reform it. There is a lot they can do to make it a sustainable program. But since they cannot even put on a decent cap, that's just not going to happen. There need to be (at a minimum) sunset provisions for these kind of industry subsidies. Having a subsidy f...

BigJim it was people like you that made this crap possible. Going along with the naive idiocy of "we are investing in an industry."
