This shouldn’t be a close call.
The opposing opinion is largely nonsensical. It is the drug companies’ prioritizing of profit over public health that has resulted in this proposal. Much of this “research and development” is funded by the same taxpayers who are excluded from the benefits of the drugs because of outrageous cost.
The argument that these companies need record profit to fund R&D is absurd. That’s not what profit does. And it should not gained by restricting American citizens from options to save their own lives.
Not only can I see no valid argument against this bill, the mere attempt to present one is unconscionable.
