LP2 Assignment: The Money is in the Medicine, Not the CureIn the article by Jerry Spencer, he makes a lot of claims about healthcare companies and thegovernment. One of the main claims that he makes is that the health-care companies don’t wantyou to be cured and that they want you to be hooked on their medicines, in this same sentence healso states that he doesn’t like taking their medicine which I believe is an expression of taste.

To check to see if this statement is accurate I searched the internet and came across agovernment website called-rates. Based on the information from this website, the claim the author is making appears to betrue.
