Reader frustrated with government

Published 12:07pm Thursday, April 17, 2014

I am very frustrated with the abuse that goes on with our government!

There seems to be a lot of waste and abuse. A new one I just found out about is the 340B program.

For those of you who don’t know, the full name of the program is 340 Drug Discount Program. As you can probably guess from the name it provides discounted pharmaceuticals to some hospitals and clinics to help poor and uninsured patients better afford their medicine.

Unfortunately, as usual, some organizations seem to be trying to take advantage of it and are not ensuring the discounted medicines reach the patients the program was intended to help.

Like with most government programs, Congress should take a close look at this. Sooner rather than later.
