Hello my friends,

I got this email from Paul and thought that I would share it with you. If Visa is your “drug plan” or your Viagra bill is keeping you up at night give it a read!

Happy Capitalism!

Much of the talk during recent economic conditions refers to protectionism, tariffs etc.

Here is something I just ran across. You can save lots of money buying your prescription drugs from Costco. I paid $133.++ yesterday for a prescription.

When I heard about Costco I called them and asked for a quote. Their price was $78.++ that’s $55 less and you don’t have to be a Costco member if you just go to their Pharmacy. I’m no shill for Costco but my local pharmacy has just seen me for the last time.

I’m 63 and don’t have a drug plan. My drug plan is my Visa card. This gap is unbelievable. Competition is needed—-everywhere— and the auto workers and public sector unions just don’t get that concept.

I have detail on a pile of well-known drugs. If interested say so and I will forward. This came from the U.S. and answered the question as to why there is a CVS pharmacy on every other corner. But it is being proven to me that in Canada there is a cost saving alternative.
