Wal-Mart Cheap Rx Plan Will Revolutionize Delivery

The environment for prescription drugs may never be the same when Wal-Mart fully rolls out its low-cost drug program. Wal-Mart has already implemented the program in 65 of its stores aeound Tampa, Florida. It will cut the price on about 150 generic drugs to $4 for a 30-day supply. If expanded, this could improve the entire U.S. healthcare system.

Are grocery pharmacies and brand name pharmacies shaking in the wake of a potential Wal-Mart blitz. The public just wants affordable drugs for their ailments. Canadian provinces might be put out of the U.S. prscription drug market too. The pharmaceutical companies will still make money on relieving disease symptons. Isn't American capitalism great?
