May you be right Dragonslayer!

I can't help but fret about the whole pre-existing clause returning.
Right now insurance can't be blocked by pre-existing conditions and we all have them!
This week will decide the outcome for ACA/Obama care. If congress can just keep from throwing the baby out with the bath water...

Agreed, but thats not what Im talking about.. Im referring to his stated policy that would have medicare negotiate drug prices with big pharma , and its impact on Gilead as spelled out in the article I linked.
