Drug Prices

It’s an amazing fact that we pay more, much more than any other country in the world for medications(read the Incidental Economist link). More than double what New Zealand pays:

Medicynical note– Our republican congress during the Bush years wouldn’t agree to negotiating prices with drug companies when Medicare part D passed. After all we wouldn’t want to stress the poor drug company’s profits. Health care? Quality? Value? Not our department.
