Gotta Love Wal-Mart

Wal-Mart announced today that it will start a test program in Florida, where it will sell generic prescription drugs for $4 for a 30-day supply. The test will start tomorrow in 65 Tampa Bay-area stores and is to expand to the whole state by January.

In a statement, CEO Lee Scott says the world's largest retailer intends to "take the program to as many states as possible next year."

On average, generic drugs tend to cost between $10 and $30 for a month-long supply.

Imagine a world without Wal-Mart. Consider the world today WITH Wal-Mart. I like the world WITH Wal-Mart much better than a world without it. According to columnist John Tierney of the NYTimes, "Wal-Mart has been one of the most successful antipoverty programs in America." Amen

Watch the incredible expansion of Wal-Mart across the US.
