Warren is such a dishonest piece of ridiculousness. She’s claiming that the 36 million unfilled prescriptions from last year are the result of people choosing between medicine and groceries. Which is patently nuts.
I haven’t filled about 90% of my prescriptions. And most everybody I know don’t feel half of theirs. Because shit gets over-prescribed. I’ve been prescribed the craziest shit for some very minor complaints that resolve on their own within a couple of days. Klara got prescribed antibiotics for a minor scratch on her thumb (“she probably doesn’t need it but just in case.”) Obviously, I refused to fill it. What am I now, a starvation victim?
This is so pathetically dishonest.
36 million prescriptions in a year is one scrip per every ten people. Let’s ask who’s prescribing all this shit and how much healthcare we’ll need if we do take it all.
