Kamala Harris Unveils Fascist Approach for Big Pharma

Kamala Harris Unveils Fascist Approach for Big Pharma

Presidential hopeful Kamala Harris (D-CA) on Tuesday unveiled her plan to force pharmaceutical companies to lower drug prices.

Her proposal, dubbed “People Over Profit,” would authorize the federal government to set “fair” rates for all prescription drugs that are sold at lower prices in economically comparable companies like France, Germany, and Australia.

The proposal also calls to import more drugs from Canada and to end a tax break drugmakers receive to offset TV ads. Companies who fail to follow federal price standards will be hit with a 100% tax on profits.

“As President, I will not stand idly by as Americans pay thousands of dollars for prescription drugs while big pharmaceutical companies rake in massive profits. This plan puts people over profit by forcing these companies to reduce prices for consumers and holding them accountable when they gouge Americans,” said Harris. “As Attorney General, I secured more than $200 million from pharmaceutical companies for California consumers, and as President, this will be a top priority in my first 100 days. We need someone who can fight to deliver results for the concerns that keep Americans up at night, like the skyrocketing cost of prescriptions.”

If Congress fails to pass the “People Over Profit” proposal during her first 100 days in office, she added, Harris will use executive action to launch an investigation into price gouging. Harris has already promised to use executive orders to achieve her goals on gun and immigration policies if Congress fails to work with her.

Earlier this month, she vowed to give black families $100 billion to help them buy houses.

Author’s Note: The high cost of prescription drugs is a chief concern for most Americans, but polls suggest voters see Bernie Sanders as the strongest candidate on the issue (26%), followed by Joe Biden (18%), Elizabeth Warren (16%), and then Harris (10%).

Furthermore, Harris’s proposal to force drugmakers to meet federal rates (whether profit or loss) is moving into fascist territory. A “fascist” is a follower of a political philosophy characterized by authoritarian views and a strong central government (with no tolerance for opposing opinions).

In 1996, Italian historian Emilio Gentile described fascism in “10 elements” including: “Corporative organization of the economy that suppresses trade union liberty, broadens the sphere of state intervention, and seeks to achieve, by principles of technocracy and solidarity, the collaboration of the ‘productive sectors’ under control of the regime, to achieve its goal of power, yet preserving private property and class divisions.”

The high price of drugs is a major problem in the United States, but forcing pharmaceutical companies to match prices in other countries is not the best way to go about solving it.

Harris also supports socialized healthcare.

    I agree she is a socialist and wants to give away $$$$to help blacks buy houses…she doesn’t care about the rest of hard working American citizens.Who is actually going to pay for this. Why should the rest of American citizens pay higher taxes for the blacks to get into housing.
    What she should do is make them work for it like the rest of home owener did. She is not fit for office at all.

    Kamala Harris is a SOCIALIST. She is where she is because the USA is a Republic and has given her the freedom t spout her mouth.. She does not understand what a Republic form of government is. We have the greatest pharma program in the world! Our pharmaceuticals are sold throughout the world. Many of our pharmaceutical companies have locations in Europe!!

    People in the comments calling a fascist and a socialist, truly moronic. I for one have a brain so I won’t be using idiotic hyperbole. Being a devotee of Jesus could never vote democrat but lowering drug prices by any means sounds good to me. My family of 4 has a total of 6 monthly prescriptions at a cost of $120. As I stated before I’m a social conservative hardcore but myself and many people I know find what the GOP is doing so far as letting corporations get away with murder while giving them a tax deduction for it repugnant. So much for Trump being for the working white man. Hopefully we can get a real populist to oppose him that’s not a schill.

      That’s only $5.00 per person a month. You can’t possibly be a conservative in any way. Must be a fake social conservative. Liberal trying his best. Trump is doing a great job and I personally benefit in many ways. Just his Judge nominations will keep my kids free of the garbage the liberals been craming down our throats for the rest of there lives.

    Harris isn’t a “Facist” per say. Her views are extreme left ! Too far left than most Americans are willing to support. Referring to her as a facist is unfair. Trump could also be viewed as one, his bias toward non white and Christians is VERY reminiscent of a facist mind set. Now do not take me wrong, I do NOT prescribe to Harris’s, Sanders or Warren’s extreme left views. I’m a Dem. BUT, extreme left is as dangerous as extreme right !

    Leftists have sold us a lot of lies, including the assertion that fascism is far right when both socialism and fascism are supported by leftists. Socialism is government ownership of the means of production while fascism is government control of them while allowing the appearance of individual ownership. Not much difference, is there? Under leftists, we now have plenty of both in our country.

    They also have taught us that our republic is a wonderful democracy and no one ever learned in school what a republic is. For reference, http://www.diffen.com/difference/Democracy_vs_Republic
