Please read and sign my MoveOn petition about Spiking Prescription Drug Pricing

Are you bewildered and scared by the sudden spike in your prescription drug prices? There's an explanation, and it's not because research to create these drugs costs a lot. It has to do with a cynical set of investments over three years by a handful of big pharm. CEO's who bought small companies with excellent drugs they'd created, trashing the Research depts, and then feeling free in a regulation-free America to spike the prices of hundreds of drugs by ten, fifteen times.
 Please sign and share if you believe we must use every strategy imaginable to make our prescription meds affordable. Read below for brilliant idea attempted in a letter last month to the NIH and HHS written by members of the Progressive wing of the Democrats
