Pricing a Critical Drug So High That People Suffer
Capitalism, private enterprise is a great system, but sometimes it doesn't work. A company that has a monopoly on a life saving drug can exploit the market to make huge profits while allowing those who cannot afford the medicine to suffer and die. Such is the case in this nation today.
Health care workers, you know, the kind of people that actually try and help ailing patients recover are horrified.
What basically has happened here, as is happening elsewhere, is a greedy uncaring bastard buys the rights to the drug, then raises the price to astronomical levels. If people can't afford, well they should not have gotten a cancer they could not afford to treat.
A nation that allows this is not one that lives up to American ideals. But it is America in 2018.
