BIG PHarma–price increases over twice the rate of inflation!!

AARP is not the most reliable unbiased source, given it’s Medicare D insurance business. But it notes:

“manufacturer prices for widely used brand name prescription drugs jumped by nearly nine percent (Medicynical emphasis) in 2008, marking the largest average annual increase in six years and far exceeding the general inflation rate of just 3.8 percent.”

Big Pharma just can’t resist.
