Supported. Several issues however. Other countries are sure to try block these sales because it will drive their costs up by basic supply and demand as well as the redistribution of R&D costs from the US to all buyers. Secondly, the really big elephant in the room that nobody wants to address is the ambulance chasing lawyers who dramatically contribute to the cost of medicine and medical care in this country. Lawyers work for large settlements with emotional arguments to sway juries- and collect anywhere from 30% to 50% off the top of the settlements and then bill legal services off the rest before plaintiffs even begin to share in the judgement. There is little risk for them and potentially huge rewards. This is fairly unique in our country and really needs to be reigned in. .... .... .... Big Pharma has seen the issues of drug pricing coming and has adapted a common furniture store clearance sale tactic. First you replace the old price tags with new ones with 30% higher prices, draw a line through that price and show a ‘sale’ price fully 10% higher than original. I think the great increased pricing of, especially critical drugs- will ‘force Big Pharma to accept huge debilitating losses’ by selling these drugs again at what used to be original pricing. A tactic! Too bad this tactic is harming so many people.
