I'm running for VA Senate b/c I believe healthcare is a human right. My GOP opponent is corporate backed & does NOT believe healthcare is a human right. He even voted AGAINST Medicaid expansion. Help me fight for human rights & flip this GOP seat BLUE.

If you’re elected, will you do something to curb outrageous medical costs, or will the taxpayer simply bear the cost of unchecked pharm companies?

Healthcare is a human right. When elected we will fight to expand healthcare access and affordable access. My opponent wants to repeal Medicaid expansion. I want to further expand it. There’s a reason I reject mega Corp money. I will always remain accountable to the people.

I appreciate that, but burgeoning medical costs from unchecked pharm companies place an undo burden on either the individual payer or the taxpayer...we need to get to the root of the problem instead of blindly subsidizing those costs.

$700 is the lower end of the pricing. Roommate was quoted 1600 for a box of 3. Less than $700 each, yes, but buying one is not an option. Each pen lasts roughly a week.

But not for long. There is creeping privatisation of the NHS already happening and an "America First" trade deal with the US in the pipeline ready to profit from the misery of millions. Whether you voted leave or remain: we are ALL going to LOSE. Sooo angry 😠😠😠

But, geez. It must be the best god damn insulin pen in the world. I'm sure it costs a lot for the fine engraving, gold plating, and the perfect balance and sleek design.

Well gee! Now I see why it costs so much! Look at the color! The design! That font must be pretty expensive. They used really great graphic designers.

Don't forget the PR team that worked extensive hours on studying the eye catching properties of blue/orange contrast!

Many moons ago I worked on redesigning a website for a large corporation. It took 2 weeks for my team of 8 to figure out the correct configuration of colors. $700 for that pen is a discount!

Ummm. Ok wait until your family has to pay $700 for a pen. I hope you got a ton of money for struggling on what the color should be

Sitting at Costco waiting for a prescription. Just overheard lady trying to pick which med she would pick up based on how much she could afford & would come back later for the others. We should not have to do this!

That’s heart breaking! I feel privileged that I can visit the doctor and get my asthma medicine and know it will cost me $5 at the pharmacy. I also feel guilt because I know I have it good.

Don't feel guilty, just the fact that you know you have it good and appreciate it is enough -hugs-
