Medicare is not allowed to negotiate drug prices. The VA can an days about 50% less than Medicare for same drugs. This seems to be obviously bullshyte so why are candidates not talking about this? Or the public? Or anyone?

Why would candidates talk about something Congress passed a decade ago? The Medicare Modernization Act screwed the government. And they can't relate to paying $1200 out of pocket for one month's supply of insulin to stay alive.

Where do you think that money goes?

Because the politicians are paid for by the lobbyists (that is why we need the flat tax)

Hillary and Bernie are aware of the problem and both plan to do something about it.
