One of the many scandals of America is that this nation allows private companies to have monopolies on life saving phramaceuticals. Instead of having public financing of drug research so that the benefits are available to everyone, this country gives private for profit companies the right to be sole manufacturers of drugs necessary for people to live. And what does a private for profit company do with this power, well they maximize profit.
But CVS has stepped into one area and lo and behold . . .
|The motto of the American pharmaceutical industry|
"Last year the makers of EpiPen decided to raise their prices to astronomical levels, and why not. They had little competiton. But it turns out they did have some, and now CVS is teaming up with that competition to kick some butt.
Well done CVS, well done!
