But this is pretty serious. Healthcare needs to be focused on curing patients. Instead the American system is centered on finding medicines that everyone needs to take permanently and charge obscene amounts for it. If the patents ever expire, they can legally bribe government agencies to shutdown the competition (this is called lobbying).

It's just an extortion racket where many people are going to have to stop using the medical system.
