  1. Doesn’t look overwhelming to me. There’s no one there?

  2. Good for you….we will all have to turn to black market for medicines and all – sure, send those supplies to thd Government so they can stockpile and sell at higher prices right back to you….just like Gov Cuomo revealed. More people need to do what you did….Stand Up. Now we know why patients are told to take tylenol for their surgery and chronic pain because they too are being stockpiled.

  3. Only 700% markup is a discount compared to what hospitals charge people in this country.

  4. all that can be seized . Report it

  5. America 🇺🇸 the bull shit land of the slaves.!!!!!!

  6. This shows how crap is the health care system in the greatest country in the world. A doctor needs to go to shady dealers to buy urgent equipment.

  7. making proft in ANY means……the american way

  8. Why support black market? Report them

  9. THIS IS NOT RIGHT, WHAT THE H#$%

  10. Zack Bagans bought all the masks.

  11. What a weasel doctor, salerno, what a snitch.  They did a favor to the wrong fckr.

  12. how about leronlimab injections. Since that’s a proven cure that gets you off a ventilator which should be in your damn hospital.Then you won’t have to go through this Trump sh*t.

  13. I wouldn’t not be surprised if our leader has something to do with it. Think about those who know enough information to have things needed. So interesting they were selling what was needed.Huh who gets information month’s ahead and didn’t do anything to prepare but others seemed to have stock piles?

    1. @Suzi Z. what is

    2. Hull Style Produtions Change the World ..all a hoax

    3. They are preppers…and it’s a big thing now

  14. Because let’s not forget having the government try and seize private property went so well the last time and if the government did try anyting they would be painting a giant Target on the backs of both police and emergency workers

    1. @Joy Queen and you realize there would be a lot of dead cops and soldiers if that were the case

    2. Nothing is private .that’s a illusion…a birth certificate is a slave paper and if at anytime you don’t pay taxes they can take your house etc

  15. Put them in jail!!!

  16. Wow, its like what the healthcare system does to patients

  17. OMG the irony…. Title ” THE MOMENT CARING DOCTOR REALIZED “….So I had to go get critically important supplies like a person that needed life saving drugs or an operation and I had to pay 8x the cost of what it should have been, like these people had no moral compass ( his exact words lol)… and I thought capitalism rules and I will give him some of my moral compass, but then I remembered leaving it at some golf even , in 1985.

    1. Besides those masks will do more good if used by the people on a street.
      But if Stalin was running this country, he would have confiscated them.

    2. Not in a health crisis…a FKG Pandemic…only a loser would sell them like ghst

  18. “The black market” — Wouldn’t that imply the protective goods are illegal somehow? Is he buying stolen goods? What the heck is going on here?!?!

    1. They want more people to get sick, so people are not allowed to purchase face masks.
      They rather waste 100 masks treating a patient, than allow people to prevent illness in the first place.
      Stalin regime wasn’t even that bad.

  19. Once this is over, Americans will find themselves being charged a markup of 20x price on healthcare. There were people who were charged 10 grand for a visit and not get tested for covid 19. Talk about price gouging…

    1. @chocolatewheelchair nothing is free

    2. health care will be free

  20. Unbelievable

  21. And did you report where these guys were?

    1. Officer , listen…there’s some guys that have cornered the market on life saving supplies and they want 8x what it should cost, or 80x if it was Canada, anyway these a-holes do not have a patent, the are just buying stuff and screwing us….officer you need to shoot these capitalist bastards, some of these patients actually matter………….And the winner for the greatest use of irony in a situation is .!

    2. of course not

  22. It’s someone’s property. We can’t force them. Just hopefully they offer it with reasonable prices.

    1. @Joy Queen
      Stalin was saying same thing.
      People should be allowed to purchase those at market price.
      I plan to, to stay safe and not end up in a hospital.

    2. Actually they can…in fact during a Pandemic they can take stuff from anyone if there’s a need

    3. LOL……oh the irony….” So we were critically low on items people really need and here are people expecting to get 8x the normal price…. and I screamed your not big pharma and some of these people really do matter………………………”

  23. Can’t the police or army raid and confiscate all that black market medical supplies?

    1. @Al 72 – I never suggested they should have the right to confiscate them. But actually almost every country in the world has a clause that they can confiscate items in a time of national emergency ! My point was that everything about the US healthcare industry is marked up 5 to 10 x and the dr apparently did not see the irony of what he was complaining about.

    2. @Murray Flewelling
      I really really need just a few N95 so i don’t become next patient.
      I am willing to pay going price of 7-8 dollars per mask.
      What Stalinist regime has right to confiscate personal property?

    3. Yeah , imagine people with no heart charging 8x for something people really need ..LMAO …..That DR needs an award for the greatest example of irony the world has ever seen.

  24. Dr. Salerno is a great guy

  25. Bust them guys… preppers cower thinking wrongly but this on is a wholly different level.

    1. How about charging 10× the fair market price for insulin?
      Big pharma…
