In the same way, VA are not really the problem. They are working with a government provided budget of X dollars to fund treatment for Y patients and are doing so with courses of medication that while not perfect are an unachievable dream for many in the US and the rest of the world.
One of their options is Sof + Peg + Riba. Any options that include Ribavirin the dose is 600mg and increase by 200mg every 2 weeks. It's not a dream, it's a nightmare.

They asked Congress for less money for treatment this year.

Hi Price, I was responding to your original post #18729 which did not include any information about either the use of Peginterferon or the VA asking for less funding. If they asked for less that is a worry, if they were granted less than they asked for then my argument stands.

These companies IMO are obviously all colluding on pricing. One charges $54,000 and won't discount, another $94,000 or now $74,000 and then discounts to insurers.

Gotta get what you can while you can! Eventually, USA and Western Europe will be on a level field with China and Vietnam. Then everyone will be charged $1200 for treatment! But as long as the façade of first world persists....it's up to the patient to get treated.

If they drop the price, there will be no more million dollar stock option payouts, no more private jets and hookers. Ain't gonna happen voluntarily.

I almost fell out of my chair laughing when I saw the imagery of ravenous rats baring their teeth, and feeding surrounded by their own feces at what I assume is the public trough.

Brilliant physical analogy and imagery Greedfighter!!!

Loved the post!
