Obama drug shortage problem heads up - article needs comments

If you read this article, and read the comments, it looks like the socialists are trying to create a problem with the drug supply. Ie the article starts out 50% of the shortages are caused by government.. and then something like 90% of the replies are to get rid of the free market (as if there is a free market in the first place), and support Obama's new plan scheduled for next week.

You'll get the drift. I was disgusted.

wow the NYT crowd

is a bit much for me...

just "signed up" so I could post a limited-character response.

Likely utterly useless, but I tossed a few cents into the junk heap.

yep...

I work as a pharmacist for money, from what I see I can tell you that

1) all scheduled (narcotic, sedative, anxiolytic, amphetamine, etc.,) drugs are manufactured based on a quotas established by manufacturers and the DEA.
There is usually an acute shortage of some drug every year.

2) manufacturers have established a production quota system for most other meds, which has to do with managed trade and the attempt to thwart reimportation using a "just-in-time" supply chain.
There is a shortage of something every month.

Bottom line.

Said by a retired healthcare provider with decades of experience. It's a chaotic, disconnected mess out there. Lots of it due to greed.

They're claiming that over

They're claiming that over half of these drugs are being prevented from coming on the market due to government or government mandated inspectors.

Obviously, Obama made some new policy between here and last year.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
