  1. Like the movie, “Rollerball”. No more countries; corporations run the world. Want to fix it? Make lobbying illegal. Yeah, ain’t gonna happen. We need a government of the people, by the people, for the people. Hmmm, where have I heard that before.🤨🇺🇸

  2. Whistleblower claimed pill is mutagenic. Proof US is not a democracy it's a corporatcry it's one big corporation and Congress are employees of the corporation pill cost $17 to develop will sell for $712.

  3. I will repeat it over and over – Our justice system should be cleaned out. Our Representatives should be cleaned out and then the laws have to be gone over one by one and fixed. No way should the law had been changed so that these researchers got the rights to all the findings they came up with based on taxpayer dollars. That was back in the 1980's. All the people involved in this scandal should be prosecuted. They are responsible for many deaths all along the way, not just with Covid. They have been protected under the law for a long time for all the deaths and harm to humans that they have caused. If you made the Heath Care industry pay their just dues we would have no national debt.

  4. I KNEW IT!!
    There was a story about a cure from Australia ages ago.
    It was on Sky News, and then I heard nothing about it since.
    Powers that be are definitely suppressing information on cures.

  5. With how fast treatments are being developed for a virus similar to the common cold, I am starting to think the researchers claiming the drug companies never wanted a vaccine for the common cold because it is more profitable to sell treatments are more correct than I thought.

  6. Krystal and Saager did you know that in order for the FDA to approve an " emergency " vaccine there needed to be an absence of viable treatments. Besides Covid drugs are just horse meds…

  7. I actually agree with the pharmaceutical. FDA costs about 2 billion – 10 billion for generic medicines. If they fail, no one says anything, but if they win, then there is all this complaints.

  8. Congress won't do anything about the $17.74 pill that cost us $740. They don't want to upset their big pharmaceutical donors. I wish krystal would've repeatedly said a $17 pill for $740, instead of repeatedly saying 40× increases. The actual number is more stark the 40× increase

  9. Single dad homeless in 12 days extend unemployment all these Gov officials and media with soft hands calling us lazy this country us still a fucking mess it's becoming real easy to become radicalized single father i cant keep doing this shit i went through this in 2009 ive never known peace born in 1980 lost both parents by 1995 this country has had it's way with me. HELP PLEASE HELP.. I wont make excuses for some of the terrible shit people do but i understand.

  10. This is the problem with Public Healthcare. The producers of any product (Private Pharma) will always set the prices, which the Government (taxpayers) will have to buy. The only way to lower prices is to create competition among the pharmaceutical companies.
