Pharmacy Choice - Pharmaceutical News - AMERICA TAKES STEP AWAY FROM COMPASSION - August 22, 2017

Pharmacy News Article


It is a guarantee that millions of Americans woke up last Friday embracing the fact that Obamacare is one step closer to the grave. And equally certain that many of these same people do not fully understand that so are they.

No matter the facts of this intended legislation - its massive reduction in Medicaid monies and government subsidies, its demolition of mandates for those who can afford to do so to buy coverage, its decimation of rights for those with pre-existing conditions - many of those in the direct path of this bullet will take comfort in the belief that President Trump is doing right by them and this nation.

It is a bill of intended consequences, not meant to heal the sick, but merely to appease those sick of caring for the less well off; not a mathematical miracle, but a 3-card Monte betrayal. This is not alms for the poor, but a thinly veiled effort to turn away millions in their hour of need.

This is Darwinism at our doorstep. It is an America without compassion or morality. And it makes me sick.
