The UK government just scrapped a plan to sell health data without patient consent. Now it’s considering a similar new one.

That's a crock: once you concentrate valuable data that way, it becomes a target. Both for those would try to profit from it, and those who would try to steal it (and profit from it.)

Bad call, Ripley.

Wow, you sure know how to make baseless assertions about what someone else knows or believes.

We discussed things before.  Your bloviations have provided sufficient data to form an informed opinion. 

As it happens I am very familiar with US and Canadian health care systems given that I work and live in both countries.

Silly me, when you said "...350 million people on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean who have public health care", I had no idea you were referring to Canada!   That certainly changes everything :O

BTW, isn't the population 740 million or so? ...or is that Canada?

Do you really want to talk to someone who can prove you are full of shit?

I'm always willing to learn.

One thing is for certain. The bills will continue to come. I guess this means everyone will need an Etsy store now?

Epinephrine isn’t an elective medication. It doesn’t last, so people need to purchase the drug repeatedly. There’s little competition, but there are huge hurdles to enter the market, so a company can raise the price again and again with little pushback. The government encourages the product’s use, but makes no effort to control its cost. Insurance coverage shields some from the expense, allowing higher prices, but leaves those most at-risk most exposed to extreme out-of-pocket outlays. The poor are the most likely to consider going without because they can’t afford it.
It’s a simple, lifesaving medication — yet hurdles to market entry allow a company that makes it to keep raising the price.

I think this is a warning shot. They are saying even if we create a free health care system, they can make it too expensive to last by jacking up prices on rescue type Rxs.

At least nine states will charge ahead with marijuana initiatives on ballots in November — a record number — despite the federal government’s decision not to loosen restrictions on the drug, underscoring the precariousness of any type of legal recognition.

When there is a candidate so far ahead and when that candidate is so inept and biased towards the corporates - America does need to ask what kind of moribund peoples democracy they really have.

The Trump campaign is trying to justify the fact that Donald Trump jacked up the rent for his presidential campaign's space in Trump Tower, but one fact destroys the Republican nominee's excuses.
