There are legit reasons for high prices on some medicines, and then there's shit like this: https://wapo.st/2qEj2QC

Every time these goddam pharma companies pull something like this, they wither the social contact just a bit more. I'm embarrassed to tell people I'm working on drugs at times for exactly this reason. The fucked up thing is that all the people I know in this industry genuinely want to make good medication that helps people. Wall Street is, let's say, unhelpful at times.

Why yes. Yes I would support a federal price-gouging statute. Thanks for asking.
