Did you know that the active ingredients in Prozac cost $0.11 per pill?
A bottle of one hundred pills costs $247.47.
That's a markup of 224,973%.
When we offshore industrial manufacturing, that's Free Trade.
When we outsource computer tech support to India, it's Free Trade.
When we build factories in Mexico... Free trade.
But god forbid we buy our prescriptions wholesale from Canada.
Its crazy how reckless this industry is. Its impressive how powerful its lobby is.
Welcome to America, land of the free, home of the permanently medicated.
