Yes it is. We need to get rid of Bush's law making it illegal for medicare to bargain with drug companies on prices too. Other countries pay less than we do for OUR OWN drugs!

Kind of. The cost to bring a drug to market is in the billions. Even after approval they can be sued for additional billions. These costs are distributed among customers, according to what they can afford. So the same drug in the US may cost 100x what it cost in Africa. Not saying it's a bad system, but Americans subsidize the 3rd world for nearly 80% of their medicine.
