Pfizer Offers A Free Drug: Small Step

Just a quick post to say that that Pfizer Pharmaceuticals announced today it is giving away Viagra for free to those who are unemployed and cannot afford it in a new program. It's terrific news for Americans. The point is that a major drug company is making a major drug available for free in America, thereby pressuring competitors.

It's a good idea if the makers of Cialis do the same. We'll see if major drug companies are immune to peer pressure. We'll also see if competitive pressures force drug prices down. It's a useful program to start somewhere, even if it's with a male stimulant drug.
