Yep. You hit the nail on the head. The Patent system in the USA (as well as a number of other nations in the world) is horribly, horribly broken.

Major I did not "hit the nail on the head", I hit a nail on the head.
A subject that has not been discussed is DR.s and other healthcare providers gaming the system.

The only explanation I can think of is overheating

As TBar stated, you said that the air intakes are clear but have you opened it up and checked for dust bunnies?

Why do you think only one company is willing to make it anymore?

Bob stated

It seems that finally some generic companies will be able to manufacture and sell this form of insulin soon so the big companies are raking in the profits while they can
.
I think the real answer is patents.

Why is healthcare costs so very big in the US?

Frivolous lawsuits generated by unethical lawyers seeking to make their fortunes driving up insurance costs to compensate causing doctors and medical facilities to keep raising their prices to cover the insurance costs generated by unethical lawyers filing frivolous lawsuits.

Partial Answer: Tort Reform and Legal sanctions on repeated attorney offenders.

In three years the insulin has gone up over 400%. Nobody else makes it and people on insulin don't have any other options.

So you don't think Bob's observation in starting this thread is a major component?

I simply can't believe any liberal would have thought putting wall street in charge of medicine would be a good thing!

Since the Clyde always, 100% of the time questions the validity of all view points that differ from his I thought he might respect another's view, silly of me to think that.

Amendment, limit of 1 term in each office, no pension, salary = Avg US wage + audited costs, cannot be a lawyer.

I want my politicians to be much better than average people and should be paid much better than average.
You get what you pay for if your lucky, if you don't pay for it you will get nothing.

The posts in this thread have convinced me to let sleeping dogs lay. My 7 and 8.1 boxes shall remain what they are. I can deal with 8.1 and 7 is really quite OK.

I reinstall what is working, unless there is good reason to upgrade.

I mentioned a bit about my background to establish the fact that I did not fall off the turnip truck yesterday, and to state the fact that I come by my perspective honestly.

Some peole can find it quite distressing when they realise they are not the sole keeper of the 'correct' world view.

Yes several come to mind.

Clyde I was not commenting on the quantity of your life experiences just pointing out that they are different, you are the one who is asserting that yours are of a greater quality. Who appointed you to be the one to judge the quality of other peoples experiences?

My perspective, may perhaps be from a greater life experience, than yours.

Clyde it may be from where you live, Florida, I live in Western Washington, which gives a very different perspective than even Eastern Washington. Heck we don't even have cockroaches here like you get to enjoy.
