Corporations robbing medicare

How about some credit where credit is due?

Here's an outrage that must be changed: Big Pharma has been systematically price-gouging the Medicare program for seniors and people with disabilities -- and raking in billions in excessive profits. The 11 largest global drug companies made an astonishing $711 billion in profits over the 10 years ending in 2012, and they got a turbo-charged boost when the Medicare Part D prescription drug program started in 2006, according to an analysis of corporate filings by Health Care for America Now (HCAN).

It is about time for some "tough reforms" as part of a "balanced package". Like, increasing Medicare premiums for "higher earners", those who make over "$47,000" per year.
