Prescription for Disaster

|

The Washington, D.C. Council has unanimously passed a law forbidding drug companies from selling their products in D.C. at an "excessive price." The bill gives the government and private citizens the right to sue drug companies over prices and places the burden on proof on the companies to show their prices aren't excessive. Excessive is defined as being at least 30% more than prices in Germany, Canada, Australia or the United Kingdom.
