List Price Too High, Oh My!

(Full disclosure) Nearly all the useful math I know was learned during the first eleven years of my education (guess which grade I skipped) from my Father. This was polished by a U.S. Navy lieutenant (jg) teaching at the Prep School in Bainbridge, MD, when I was 20.

(More full disclosure) I know less about law than most (but not all) lawyers.

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +

With that, let me invite each of you to shed a tear for ‘Big Pharma’. Whoa – just one; one humungous crocodile tear.

Think of all the money, time, and energy they’ve expended over the past three days on the conniption fit about drug list prices, discounts, and rebates.

This is made necessary because they do not dare address the real facts behind obscene list prices for life-saving drugs.

The problem is nearly as old as commerce: Fictitious list prices.

They know exactly why their list prices are going through the roof, but to admit it means they know they are guilty of defrauding the U.S. Government.

If you can get someone to pay list price, then an unrealistically high list price constitutes a fraud, an essential part of a despicable scam.

Enter the U.S. Government, prohibited by law from negotiating drug prices.

On 01/06/2015, S.31 – Medicare Prescription Drug Price Negotiation Act of 2015 was introduced by Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN).

This is a Bill To amend part D of title XVIII of the Social Security Act to require the Secretary of Health and Human Services to negotiate covered part D drug prices on behalf of Medicare beneficiaries

As of August 26, 2016 the Bill has been read twice and referred to the Committee on Finance.

I found no evidence of any further action on the Bill.

Discuss this with your senators and representatives.

If their eyes glaze over, you’ve committed the cardinal sin of Too Many Numbers (to paraphrase Emperor Joseph II’s remarks on Mozart’s work: “Too many notes.”)

If you detect a knowing look, they have been aware of the scam from the beginning.

Guardianship Abuse: Testimony for the Senate Judiciary Committee

3 Comments

 

NOTEAcross the nation is a web of predatory professional guardians who operate under the protection of corrupt probate court judges.  This system of predatory human trafficking involves kidnapping elderly victims who made the mistake of aging with assets.  The attached letter of testimony is to be presented to yet another Senate Committee, this time the Judiciary Committee, in the hopes that someone in D.C. will  move to bring this corruption and court sanctioned abuse to a halt.  Marti Oakley

Subcommittee on Administrative Oversight and the Courts

Hearing: “Protecting Seniors and Persons with Disabilities – An Examination of Court – Appointed Guardians”

Testimony on Elder Abuse of Carol Hahn in San Bernardino County, CA

My mother, Carol Hahn, is a victim of elder abuse. That abuse was initiated by Mindy Martin, who lied to investigating deputies and perjured herself in court documents to become my mother’s temporary conservator. More than a year later, Mindy Martin is still temporary conservator, and the abuse continues. My mother’s court appointed attorney, Mark Flory, has actively facilitated the abuse. Neither individual has been held accountable.

The existing “system” has utterly and completely failed to protect my mother or come to her aid. Rather, law enforcement concealed evidence and threatened family members. Adult Protective Services and the Long-Term Care Ombudsman will not return our phone calls. Programs and agencies are useless when there is no accountability. Laws are useless when they are not enforced. Additional laws and agencies will be equally useless unless a system of accountability is established. More
