... that some companies like WalMart may also strike deals with the Pharma companies to offer some brand name drugs for cheaper. I predict some will not be happy when this happens.

Mainly drug companies and their investors, Evie. I sold all my pharma stocks shortly before the election, because I suspect that Medicare/Medicaid will now finally do what all the insurance companies do and use their enormous pricing power to lower the cost of prescription drugs to the Government -- probably enough to close that obscene "donut hole" in the benefit. Of course, that still leaves those least able to pay at all (the uninsured) paying the highest prices, which certainly isn't right...
