AARP-ing Me Off
I just saw an ad by the AARP that encouraged the public to lobby their congressmen for the right to negociate with Canada for cheaper drugs. I'm really tired of people calling for this. The drugs are made here. We sell them to Canada. The Canadian people subsidize their purchase, so they are cheaper when purchased in Canada. If we then buy them in the states, we're basically tricking the Canadian government into subsidizing our drugs. It'll never happen.
