Not the drug companies,,,,,,,,,, it is the FDA that make sure Americans pay 2X as much for drugs than people in other countries pay.
FDA requirements cost BILLIONS in research, testing and product evaluations that take years to fulfill.
Canadian drugs are not FDA approved.
I'm not proud of obama.

Under the World Trade Org. TRIPS agreement
developing countries are paid not to produce cheap drugs
Cuba refused = enemies of the USA

Other countries governments cap prices. That is all there is to it. Unfortunately that leaves Americans to pay the R&D costs.
