    incredible, so this is #1 combining with #2 to form a near monopoly,,, which will of course be great for consumers.... once again, consumers sold down the river by the government.

    Medco is #3. I had it for a time, sold it when rumors were rampant the deal would not be done.

     

    It's not just consumers being sold out in this. It's also pharmacists. Note that Walgreen's and ExpressScripts still can't together, and now ESRX will have the ability to take Medco away too. Very bad news for WAG.

    Anyone think it was just an accident that the Gov. backed off just after George Soros purchased a huge amount of MHS?
