I haven’t been on this site for a long long time. Recently I have ventured into healthcare and have began fighting for people. Healthcare is a civil right and not a privilege. Attached is an OP-Ed I did and Utah Policy’s Bryan Schott was kind enough to run the piece for me. Read up as there is some serious concerns about Utah’s pending “work Mandate” .. I will look forward to getting back into better habits of posting updates and new policies.

Has anyone noticed that we have a drug, pill, or some type of medication that we can take for almost any symptom out there? I find it disturbing that we can go out to the pharmaceutics industry and find a poorly regulated industry that is sucking and ruining the live’s of so many Americans.
We have people struggling every day with addictions, along with the heart break, crime and every day violence that comes along with this painful prescriptions. We want to even give the addicts a pill for their addiction… If that makes sense?
More kids are typing from over doses than ever before. I personally am not a fan of pills, I understand it helps some clients in real pain. However, I believe it gets to a point where we have to walk a fine line with what we are feeding and pumping into society.
Most normal folks don’t understand most doctors get a referral or kickback “money” off of writing you a prescription. Of course the Doc has to feel comfortable prescribing that prescription How can we tell when a doctor is just wanting to push a prescription through?
Hopefully you trust your doctor…
I mean I wouldn’t sit here and complain if this wasn’t the 11th Consecutive year that the death rate has gone up. I was speaking to an officer the other day that works in West Valley City about homicide.
I asked the officer what do you see most deaths related to here in Utah?
He said “just this other week in February 2013 he had 3 dead bodies to investigate over alcohol mixed with prescription drugs or synthetic heroin “oxy’s”. It’s sad that we are shoving death pills down our society!
We should really take a loot at the pill problem that America has as should be a much larger concern than it is right now! Many innocent lives are being ruined by the “pill abyss”
