Reel in Big Pharma! AMA calls for banning prescription drug advertising while Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton take aim at ending drug pricing monopolies

(NaturalNews) To the surprise of many, the American Medical Association is now openly calling for the FDA to ban direct-to-consumer drug advertising, a deceptive marketing channel that was only legalized by the FDA in 1997.

Since then, drug prices have skyrocketed, health care costs have hit the stratosphere, and consumers are asking their doctors for an increasingly bewildering array of high-priced patented chemicals (medications) that, for the most part, don’t even work on most people.

Instead of America’s health getting better, it’s getting WORSE. More people now suffer from not just chronic degenerative disease, but also now the side effects of taking dangerous prescription medications to supposedly treat those diseases. Everything from statin drugs to PPIs and antidepressants have toxic — even DEADLY — side effects that contribute to worsening public health and increasing risk of cancer, diabetes, dementia and other diseases.

The result is that America has become the most expensive, corrupted and unethical health care system in the world, where Big Pharma profits drive nearly every regulatory decision and political action. Just a few days ago, a Big Pharma shill named Robert Califf was confirmed as the new head of the FDA. He has accepted money from 23 different drug companies and believes the FDA should function as a marketing partner of the drug industry.

Now, the AMA says it’s time to stop the insanity of advertising prescription drugs on television, and there’s no doubt the AMA is correct on this point.

Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton both take aim at pharma
Interestingly, both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have publicly attacked Big Pharma’s pricing monopolies. Predictably, Clinton believes drug prices should be controlled by government (central planning / communism economics) while Donald Trump believes drug companies should have to competitively bid for government contracts (free market / democratic economics).

With Big Pharma utterly devastating America’s economy with unaffordable “health care” costs across the board, America has no future unless we stop the insane cycle of the mass drugging of the American people for corporate profits. No matter who ends up in the White House next January, Big Pharma is going to be on the target list, and the AMA already knows it.

    Don’t get too excited! The only reason that drug adverts will be purged from the television isn’t to slightly hinder the pharmaceutical empire (Worshipful Company of Barbers, Worshipful Society of Apothecaries of London). Why? Instead it’s all about the complete removal of doctors from the equation as they become nothing more than a minor interface between the patient and the IBM Watson-like controlled socialized medicine model (Obamacare). No longer will a doctor decide on what drugs you’re prescribe based on his or your own opinions. In the near future the prescription role will go to the grand sorcery of the all-seeing (NSA/GCHQ) micro-processor and its fixed (Bertrand Russell) artificial intelligence algorithms based solely on symptom patterns and medical history. Eventually the doctors themselves will become extinct as you’ll simply be interacting with the new medical model via the Internet of Things. So now I hope you’ll see straight through all this anti-pharma illusionary talk and ignore this media circus of an election. The Internet self-diagnosis social engineering both in allopathic and natural medicine is a psychological effort towards easy acceptance and conditioning of and to this new system.

    It only took me ten seconds to know exactly what was going on!
