    Everything he said is true….Doctors given lavish trips, money….the huge lunches and dinners we were invited to at exclusive restaurants all the while elderly and poor going without medication they desperately needed but, couldn’t afford. Sad.

    Reblogged this on 10 Years a Single Mom and commented:
    Pharmaceutical companies have been out of control for decades now amassing gigantic profits and strong arming Doctors into prescribing medications in the name of making a profit as opposed to considering the health and well being of you, the consumers. John Oliver sums up how big Pharma has no interest in your health and they need to be stopped.

    His comedy is like a brilliant sword; would be so much funnier if it wasn’t so true. Ugh.
