Gimme a break, Gilead. Pricing this drug like a mortgage is outrageous by any
reasonable standard. The underlying problem is that Gilead paid $11 billion
dollars for rights to the drug, a foolish amount to pay for any one chemical
compound. Insurance companies and many doctors are against it. Shame on
Gilead, a company that has done so much for patients with HIV.
Pigs get fat but hogs get slaughtered. Gilead is being a hog and this proves
that there should be limits to what pharmaceutical are allowed to charge.
Republicans complain about the price of Obamacare, but they protect such pricing
by pharmaceuticals which shouldn't be allowed. Forcing insurers to cover
the insane cost of this medication will add Billions to their premiums which you
and me will be paying even though we don't have Hep. C.
