We are being price gouged on housing cost, gas, food and utilities.
Rich have gotten richer and everyone else has got poorer. You sheeple will not do anything about this gouging.

What can be done, except don't buy certain products?

I also saw in the news that patients are being price gouged on their life-saving drugs. sad2.gif People needing certain drugs have no choice but to pay up.

Yeah, things are sh1tty there. Up here we've actually seen prices going down. Our food budget has gone down substantially.
The USD is not healthy and neither is the country, other than good times for the .01% and the 4.99% that do their bidding.

Or, encourage price wars, via encouraging more people to start businesses.

Your wages there are substantially higher than that slave labor thing they have going on.

Give back to society, " Meals ON Wheels" for instance, You know where your money is going, this is where your money goes when one donates to the Red Cross.

In the case of the Cravens house, $2 million dollars worth of improvements were made in lieu of cash payment to the Red Cross.

Take a turn and feed the old, deliver meals to the needy, It's a life changing experience.

Giving back is well and good, but how do we fight price gouging?

Not just medications. ANY medical related item is outrageously over priced. That is part of the reason doctor and hospital visits are so expensive. EVERYTHING has markups of thousands of percents. That's why they can pay reps (salesmen) six and seven figure incomes.

And don't forget the outrageous malpractice insurance because of ridiculous suits. It has gotten so bad that you are extremely hard pressed to find an attorney to represent you if they don't feel there will be at least a $300K award. (We experienced this first hand with an open and shut case.)

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

The same goes for overpriced housing in certain cities...here is the attitude that is the reality...
