Day 41 – My journey to find reasons to vote for Hillary rather than just against Trump.

She’s taking on Big Pharma.

She won’t allow epi-pens to sell for hundreds of dollars. She has proposed a few different approaches to combat both the high cost charged by drug companies for drugs and the price consumers will pay for drugs. These can be two wildly different things since insurance picks up the tab for most people.

Her suggestions are different. Whether they work or not – or pass the Senate – remains to be seen, but she’s thinking about it.

FWIW, she has received more campaign money from the drug companies than any other candidate. So, on this front at least, it appears she can’t be bought.
