Not to be tacky, but I suggest that two of the ladies in the picture could help themselves and their disease by losing a little weight and watch what they eat.  Just a suggestion, of course.

Of course they should, but how does saying so help somebody get elected to federal office or maintain their position?

Nah. Much more palatable and voter-friendly to focus on the evil corporations.

We are talking about this government, aren't we?  If we were any other kind of government like China or NK, we would not even be having this discussion because you would not even be allowed to own a gun.

Just pointing out the stupidity of the women.  My mom-in-law was diabetic and drove mr crepe nutso with her stash of chocolate Hershey bars, stored next to her insulin. Thankfully she lived two days drive from where we lived and he wasn't confronted with it very often.  Like most of us, she did what she was going to do her way.

I love corporations.  They pay people who work for them.

If I was taking insulin inn the U.S. and I heard about a better price deal across the border, I sure as heck would want to know for certain that the quality of the insu8lin was the same as what I was taking/getting from the U.S.  Medicine is one area where I want quality as opposed to quantity.

Not to be tacky, but I suggest that two of the ladies in the picture could help themselves and their disease by losing a little weight and watch what they eat.  Just a suggestion, of course.


Are you suggesting that US prices for insulin have tripled because our quality control costs have gone up?

How interesting this outrage is FINALLY showing up.  This has been ongoing since the ACA was implemented, not something Trump caused.  This was the result of Obama's beloved ACA bill was passed.  I know because close friends of ours told us their delima years ago of not being able to afford their medicine.

So did you turn your back on God because you enjoyed mocking people?  Was the commandment to,love your enemies too much for you?  Seems you relish being an arseholes more then a compassionate individual.

Nope, not even close.  I'm just saying that meds are important enough to me that I want to make certain I'm getting the insulin that is high quality and remains the same from one production to another.  Don't want a good batch one month and a notso good batch the next one.

So you do enjoy and savor being a jerk.  Pretty sad Fiddler, that you relish mocking women, the sick, the handicap for your pleasure.  What a fall from grace you have made.  You a reminder to me on a daily basis of how depraved one is in the world outside of God's grace.  No thank you sir, I have no desire to walk in your shoes.
