Paging Dr. Gupta

I actually heard Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN's physician-in-residence, say this on my TV this morning:
Finally, and a lot of doctors may not tell you this, but you can actually break a lot of pills in half. In fact, a lot of them are actually scored down the middle. Again talk to your doctor about this, but if you can break it in half, you get double the number of pills for the same amount of money.

I have a suggestion: how about some freaking universal prescription drug coverage so I don't have to game the system and make my doctor an accessory to insurance fraud just to afford my medication?
