I'm not even sure he'd need to do that. I have a buddy whom followed a girl to Australia and emigrated there. He hurt his back in the USAF and is on pain management for the rest of his life. Had he still lived in the US his prescription costs would be over $600 a month here. In Australia it's under $40. Same drug, same US drug manufacturer.

I hate to say it, but we simply just need to ban drug companies from being huge profit centers on the stock market. They should be allowed to make profit, sure, but only to the extent of creating new medications, R&D, and funds to provide pay raises when appropriate.

There was a Wikileaks thread on here about how the Clinton camp (basically same as the Obama camp) had been paid money by the pharmaceutical companies, and they were discussing this very same issue. Seems they didn't want to make too many waves and upset them. Apparently the FDA is paid off as well.

THAT is why we voted the bitch out!

There was quite a lot of crackdown on Indian drug makers in the Obama years. That explains it then !

better than being flooded with all of the counterfeit drugs coming out of China, as it is now.
