As if he's responsible for what his daughter does. As if he can tell her what to do with a publicly traded company.

She has her position and thinks she can do what she wants because she's a Senators daughter.

It has a single year expiration. You have to pay 700 dollars every year or you can die if a bee stings you.

It cost 57 dollars in 2007 which was still inflated.

Do they have a monopoly on this drug? Can't someone else produce a similar product and sell it for 50 bucks?

Its literally a life saver. That's what it is. And people can't take precaution now if they have a life threatening allergy. They have to hope they make it to the ER on time and take the $700 hit to live on.

This is precisely the opposite of what they need. To so see what happens when corporations are allowed to run amuck, look up the 2008 financial crisis.

I am all for a free market economy, but there are some things that the profit motive should not be applied to. Healthcare and security are amongst these things.

The problem with comparing this issue to the free market and capitalism is that the government (tax dollars) are paying gig the bill.

Entities that bill the government can set their price points way outside what a normal free market economy would tolerate. They would be out of business or lowering their prices in a New York minute if people had to pay out of pocket.

The government and our tax dollars are merely seen as a cash cow for some corporations. Mainly medical and military, but I think everyone is now hip to the formula.

Work harder!!!

Shouldn't drugs be taxes just like food? That way the government can use the taxes to make drugs cheaper!

In 1900 the average life expectancy in the US was about 45 years for males and a few years longer for females. By 2000 those life expectancies had increased dramatically to over 70 years of age in the US.

A huge factor in that lifespan increase was improvements in medical care and medicines, like the "evil" Big Pharma that created pills that saved many from death, pain, and dangerous, even life-threatening, surgeries.

US medical advances have greatly exceeded those of other countries in large part because of the profit motive.

Put aside security for purposes of this discussion and just think about healthcare since that is the type of device (Epipen) that is the subject here. Would you only want the govt to take away the profit motive in human healthcare (as opposed to healthcare for dogs, cats, and other animals)?

In a free market, investment capital will tend to be channeled to the place where it can get the best return for a given amount of risk. It's like water will flow downhill. (However, humans with incomplete knowledge,imperfect decision-making skills, and psychological factors are involved such that flow of investment capital is not quite as exact or predictable as water flowing down a hill.)

The point is that if you take away profit motive for human healthcare, investments will flow into other markets, such as animal healthcare.

Suppose the govt tells a research company, "cure this human disease and save 10,000 lives a year and the govt will tell you how much you're allowed to charge." The govt also tells them "cure this canine disease and save 10,000 dogs a year and you get to charge whatever you think the market will bear."

The research company will, all other factors being equal, assign their biologists, chemists, pharmacists, and others to working on cures for dogs, not humans. Maybe they will fire the doctors on their staff and hire veterinarians.

While the above is hypothetical, do you really want to keep the people and company which cures human cancer from striking gold? And, at the same time, you're OK with the people and company which cures canine cancer hitting the jackpot?

I'm not defending the Epipen price. I've no problem with consumers, individually or in groups, criticizing or protesting some price decision of a company.

If one thinks that the profit motive should be removed from healthcare, maybe the govt should produce all medicines and supply the medical care? Who thinks that the govt does this better than a profit-motive driven private sector?

Like this, it's another result of liberal policies.

The high cost of drugs is always to recoup losses spent in product development. As the drug companies.

You fucking rightards are garbage. Loser ass motherfuckin garbage. And even when you fail you still deny and insist on pushing this country to fail some more.

It would be great if you could at least, at the very least, recognize reality on occasion and reform accordingly. But even that is too much to ask from garbage.

Hey assclown, you do knoq that you are the OP of this thread, right?

You are the one that pointed out the failed liberal policies, back door senate deals and the lobbyists that made this happen. Don't forget the large contributions to tje Clinton money laundering foundation.

Gerry is too stupid for that too. You ever see the video of the dog trying to bite his own leg because it was trying to steal his bone?

All he needs is the headline. Facts and circumstances never got in the way of a good liberal fag complaining about something that sucks and failing to understand that they caused it.
