Monologue

Dr. Wallach starts the show discussing the fact that politicians often promise free healthcare if they are elected.  Doc asserts that it is not free citing other nations that have socialized healthcare whose tax rates are often as high as 75% to pay for this so called "free" healthcare.

Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a recent report from prescription benefit provider Medco Health Solutions Inc.  that states 51% of insured Americans are taking at least one prescription medication.  The numbers were worse for seniors over age 65 with 28% of women and 22% of men taking 5 or more medications.
