“The cost of drugs for each additional year lived (after adjusting for inflation) has increased from $54,000 in 1995 to $207,000 in 2013. This increase is causing harm to patients with cancer and their families.” Peace.

Good for the doctors! From what I have read over the past few years, most of our nations' problems have the same underlying cause: greed. Capitalism has been infected with this virus, and has gone from providing prosperity to as many people as possible to concentrating more and more wealth in fewer and fewer paws. The bottom line is all that matters, and the 99% be screwed.

Way to go Mayo Clinic! Big Pharma is criminal.

Noted. Thanks, Cheryl.
Just awful! Medicare was banned from negotiating drug prices during the Bush Admin. This is price gouging, and I'm glad to see these doctors speak out.

*There is a petition link at the bottom of the article. Signed the change.org petition there.

Good for them, the hospital I use here, is connected to Mayo Clinic.

This is sort of a joke given that so many traditional medical doctors get PAID by Big Pharma to prescribe the most expensive name-brand drugs! It took me five separate phone calls to get my local clinic to give me the least-expensive prescription I needed.
