14. Don't change the subject.
The drug companies charge Americans more than they do consumers in other countries. Why? Do we really expect them to give up anything out of the goodness of their hearts? They know American consumers are strapped right now, and they haven't lowered prices on their own. They do have a few very restrictive programs to help with drug costs, but face it, they are making a fortune, and that fortune is being protected by Bushco.

They won't be forthcoming with any help until they are forced to. They've had the chance already.
