Rx R&D Myths: The Case Against The Drug Industry’s R&D “Scare Card”

  • Drug Industry R&D costs are significantly reduced by taxpayer-funded research subsidies

  • Significant expenses in the Drug Industry are tax deductible

  • Drug industry’s effective tax rate is about 40 percent less than the average for all other industries

 Skyrocketing Health-Care Premiums
Health-Insurance Rates Are Rapidly Increasing, With No End in Sight – By Jackie Judd April 25, 2002 — Jon Ward was stunned when a health-insurance agent told him his company’s premiums were going up 48 percent this spring.

The drug industry claims its high profits are necessary in order to conduct expensive research and development. It spends more on research than any other industry. The federally funded National Institutes of Health may be the drug industry’s biggest benefactor. This government agency alone will spend more than $23 billion on research this year. And much of the research benefits the drug industry. “There’s no other industry in which you have so much public investment in the fundamental knowledge that enables … the development of the commercial industry itself,” said Dr. Bernadine Healy, who used to run the NIH. And how important is this publicly funded research to the industry? The NIH looked at the five top-selling drugs of 1995 in a report. It found that “NIH-funded research played a critical role” in discovering each one of those drugs. Similar to Existing Drugs A closer look reveals that much of the profits from prescription sales are not derived from breakthrough drugs, but rather from drugs that are similar to already popular medications. But, adding up all the drugs approved over the past six years, 80 percent of all those drugs were deemed by the FDA to be similar to what already exists. In other words, not a significant improvement.

 

TO OUR POLITICIANS FROM A SPIRITUAL WORKING STIFF

Be ever mindful of your role. You have elected to be a servant of the people. The people own the house. They built it. But they can’t run it everyday nor can they protect it, and build roads leading up to it. The people can’t educate the children and regulate the economy because they are too busy working. So they hire servants to handle these duties and they pay those servants to protect, regulate, and handle the affairs of housekeeping.

But the house is still owned by the people. The servants don’t get to make demands. The people do. The servants don’t own the funds they receive for protecting, regulating, and delegating. The people do. It’s our house. We the powerful working stiffs of America own it.

We lead ourselves everyday, and if you want to speak to us, do it from your heart, without a Teleprompter or a spin doctor at your side. We are honest, hard working and straightforward. We are generous and kind to those in need. We don’t need to be coddled or lied to. We can smell insincerity and BS a mile away. We pay the freight and keep it moving across America everyday. Not because you are leading us. We are not following you or anyone else.

There is a spirit in all of us. A spirit that urges us upward to a greater connection to that which is just, moral and honest. We expect no less from those who have chosen to serve.

Understanding: .................... Understanding disolves the pseudo dichotomies revealed by StarSteps, with scientific validation of the age old philosophies surmised by Walter Russell and Judge Thomas Troward, merging physics and metaphysics (Plato’s suggestion); Understanding the radius of curvature, symbolized by our ancestors with the circle & sine wave, un-hides the hidden variables, removes the foundational problems described in The Trouble With Physics, and as previously stated, leads toward self recognition of very advanced and practical solutions to contemporary “issues” on the tripod of reality - physical, mental/social, and the vague spiritual dimension revealed by the ‘zero point’ of no time, no space, also found in the realm of advanced martial arts and meditation. ......................... The statement from a well known book, “Let there be Light” is now enhanced with far more practical meaning: Light’s velocity, converted into an energy differential is the measure of the radius of curvature of all natural law; This same energy differential (VC) is the total energy contained in each and every gram of atomic mass. It could be said, everything we see and touch is light in motion or light stationary. ............................. http://evolution-intelligentdesign-survival.blogspot.com/2010/01/its-musical-universe.html .
