I take a prescription drug now that I order from Canada. It is actually made in India by a company for another major drug company based in the United States. Oddly enough, if I buy the same exact drug in the States, it has the same major drug manufacturer's name on it in big print. When you read the fine print it says 'product of India'. When I order this drug from Canada, a three month supply is $40. When I get the same drug from a pharmacy here, it costs $600.00 for three months (fifteen times higher)). I simply cannot afford the TPP.
How anyone can think the TPP to be a good thing is beyond me.

It will be devastating to seniors. I order a prescription drug from Canada that costs $38 for a three-month supply, including shipping. If I paid for the same drug through Medicare, it would cost me $400. The mark-up on the U.S. drug market is obscene.

I kind of figured that someone else would perhaps post a similar experience. I know of other people in the same boat. I have a niece who has a friend in Canada buy a drug over the counter in there that is prescription only in America. Her friend ships the drug to my niece, it costs $8.00 a month over the counter in Canada, and over $200 a month by prescription here. My niece needs the drug for her 13 year old son.
We live in the United Corporations of America and it has to stop. We need to stop the TPP.
