Dems sell out American People over wall funding

Posted February 11, 2019, 10:55 am

web1_DemocratsThe most basic duty of our government is to defend our nation and its people.  That defense is not only against territorial conquest by armed invaders but also against invasion by legions of non-citizens who enter illegally.

Our nation has the right to defend its borders and the right to determine who does and does not enter its sovereign territory.  It is inarguable that the southern border of the United States is the entryway for many clear and present dangers to the nation.  Can a reasonable person seriously question that of the 12 million or more illegal aliens currently in this country many, if not most, entered from Mexico?

The uncontrolled invasion of the United States by millions of illegal aliens costs us hundreds of billions of dollars annually, savages the rights of our legal citizens when the invaders bring with them crime, drugs and disease, consumes our resources and burdens our legal and social systems.  Those are facts.

FBI statistics demonstrate that illegal immigrants commit crimes at rates much higher than legal citizens. An estimated 2000 murders, 51,000 assaults and 7,000 sex offences are committed every year by illegal aliens.  Would those crimes occur if the illegal aliens were prevented from entering?

The cost of illegal aliens is estimated to be $300 billion annually.  That cost over a decade is $3 trillion.

The heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine and fentanyl crossing the Mexican border costs this country another $500 billion annually and exacts a terrible toll in human suffering.

Do you need proof house socialists are crazy?

Posted December 31, 2018, 9:46 am

67564One of the great resources of the United States is the ability of Drug Manufacturers to research, develop and bring to market miraculous lifesaving drugs.  This is a long and tremendously expensive process, made longer and more expensive by voluminous federal regulation.

When a company spends hundreds of millions of dollars developing a drug, they deserve to be compensated for that effort by not only recouping development costs but also making a profit.

In America this right is protected to some degree by the grant of a patent which gives the company the exclusive right to market that product for some period of time before copycat generics may be marketed in competition.  Currently, this period is 20 years from the time of invention.  It can take eight or more years to go through all the testing and validation protocols so a company may only have 10 or so years to recoup hundreds of millions of dollars of development cost plus make a profit.  The market may be very focused and small.  Consequently, many highly effective miracle drugs are very expensive.

The Democrats see this as a horrible inequity that must be “corrected”.  Their solution, as always, is a socialist response.  House Bill  H.R. 6505 titled Medicare Negotiation and Competitive Licensing Act of 2018 introduced by Rep. Lloyd Doggett D-TX seeks to give another unelected government bureaucrat the power to strip the patent protection from such an invention and release it to other companies to produce.  In this manner they seek to lower the price of drugs.

The criteria for stripping such protection are:

  • The cost of the drug would impose financial burdens on potential users
  • There is an unmet need for such a drug

The first criteria would probably cover almost everyone when some of these drugs can cost tens of thousands of dollars a year.  It would certainly pertain to the poor who, often, are the ones who need such a drug the most.  This creates an incentive for companies to not bring drugs to market for the very people they might help the most.

The second criteria eliminates the primary reason drugs are developed and marketed – an unmet need that will consume large quantities of the product.

These two criteria, taken together, would probably mean that almost every new drug would be liable to having its patent protection arbitrarily stripped by a federal official.

This proposal clearly demonstrates the absolute lack of understanding of market and economics that the emotionally driven child-like liberals have.  With no way to make a profit on a development, why would a company invest the huge resources required into developing a new drug?  Such a law would destroy the drug industry in the U.S. and deprive the very people they seek to help of potentially life saving medicine.  More, it would mean that few, if any, new drugs would be developed in this country destroying an industry that contributes hundreds of billions of dollars to the economy.

This type of thinking and legislation is what we will see much more of from the new and radicalized Democrat House of Representatives.
