Coalition of more than 100 health groups creating generic drugmaker
I'll follow this company with interest. I like seeing a free market
solution to a challenge facing many people. That it is a free market solution
suggests that the people starting this company believe it will be sustainable
(since the government isn't funding it no matter how well it does). It also
will have the incentives to adjust its business strategy quickly if it is losing
money. Free market capitalism is not without compassion.
Very good, Uteofferouus!
As a retired healthcare professional, I am encouraged by what I am reading about
this new not-for-profit venture by Civica RX.After working for 40+
years in hospitals and other facets of the healthcare industry, I am embarrassed
by what I participated in during those years as I witnessed the system
financially gouge sick and helpless patients and their families. No, I'm
not embarrased by the care I provided to patients, I am embarrassed by what the
hospitals charged for those services. I'm embarrassed by a system that was
originally based on compassion and service to fellow human beings evolved into a
profit hungry enterprise bent on building an empire and making kings out of
it's CEOs and many others in the system.I'm not saying
that healthcare providers should't make a reasonable living, but when a
service system virtually bankrupts it's customers and the American economy,
something is terribly wrong!
The idea is legit! We should be careful to not attack those who are trying to
help the victims of this scam - patients in Utah. I back Harrison 100% and am
proud to be under his leadership. Sincerely, Brandon R. Vonk
Kudos to Marc Harrison and Dan Liljenquist and associates! You represent the
best of leadership and thinking in America today. Such great men
and women as this group who have witnessed the raping of America by the
healthcare juggernaut have now arisen to take a stand for morality and decency!
How long must working people watch their loved ones suffer and die in agony
while the drug companies and other healthcare entities continue to force them to
choose between poverty and healthcare?How egregious the money lust
that so many in the healthcare industry exhibit while average people struggle
mightly to pay for obscene health insurance premiums, co-pays. These purveyors
of greed go home everyday to their luxurious homes in their BMWs and Cadillacs
with impunity while ignoring the pain and suffering that could be relieved by a
lower cost healthcare system - shame on you - all of you - you know who you are!
This is one of the biggest news stories in recent memory!. A big thanks to Mr.
Harrison and all the other visionary leaders who are forming this important
company. As a healthcare professional, father, and consumer of healthcare, I
cannot state forcefully enough what a big and needed initiative this is!With regards to those drug companies who gouge consumers, the following
statement should send a shock into their consciences: "the folks who are
perverting the system, they know exactly who they are and they should be very
concerned."We as human beings (and Americans) have a capacity to
do good things and to make the world a better place if we only will use our
intelligence and energy to do so - the people at Civica RX understand this. All associated with Civic RX. are patriots and benevolent human beings.
They stand in stark contrast to the malevolent drug company Czars and profit
hungry share holders who polute the soul of society in their pursuit for filthy
The idea, on paper, seems legit. However, with Dan Liljenquist and Marc Harrison
in charge, I have my doubts.
Good luck to Civica RX, it will help with one of the many things that need to
change in healthcare.
