When someone loses their eyesight it makes it difficult to work. When a day laborer loses their leg, guess what? They can’t work. These people go on disability.Tax payers are now taking care of these people while big pharma gets tax breaks! That’s not right. In fact, it’s disgusting. There needs to be regulation. Even our long awaited generic insulin comes with a hefty price tag.
