Taking the Phifth

“You all spent all of your time strategizing about how to hide your price increase … and coming up with stupid jokes while other people were sitting there trying to figure out how they were going to survive.” So said U.S. Representative Elijah Cummings as Pharma Bro Martin Shkreli made weird faces, laughed, and took the Fifth during his short exchange with a House oversight committee. He later tweeted that the folks on the committee are imbeciles.

+ It’s fun (and probably appropriate) to demonize Pharma Bro. But don’t let it take your eye off the bigger issue. Crazy medical costs. From Bloomberg: Shkreli Was Right. Everyone’s Hiking Drug Prices.
