Pills Vs. Firearms

Are you PO'ed about the high cost of medications? Here's a report about a group of voters who are fighting back:

This clause of the US Constitution favors Big Pharma over the consumer:

Article I, Section 8
8: [The Congress shall have Power] To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries;

Now contrast that clause with this amendment:

Second Amendment
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Many people think Congress should infringe our right to keep and bear arms, and that if Congress won't the Executive Branch should. And they piss and moan about this every day.

So why are they not equally concerned about an issue which drastically affects the health and wellbeing of even more of us - the high cost of medications?

From my perspective, they don't because they really do not care what happens to us. As long as the right people can continue to feed at Big Pharma's trough, to them everything is OK.
