How does Blumenthief know what the price of a prescription should be? This piece of human garbage will sue if it moves. So why doesn't he sue the oil speculators for price fixing and goughing. Because many of them live in Greenwich where he does. This corrupt scum needs to go as soon as possible. This won't be up long,for CH 8 worships the ground this putts walks on.

Pharmaceutical companies are greedy... is this news? They have large scale operations reacting, fermenting, processing and anything else down to a cheap science. The worst part of it all is some people are now buying Chinese-made medicine without proper labelling and paying the same price for this stuff. Quality control in China for medicine, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics is very lax (antifreeze [ethylene glycol] in your toothpaste anyone?). Between the overprescription of drugs and lots of sneaky things going on behind the scenes, people are just draining their health and wallets.

And I agree with some of the previous posters in questioning why the AG will not do anything about the greedy speculators he calls his neighbors. Why should crude oil cost 4x the amount it did in 1998, just ten years ago?

I quit taking my high-priced US-made prescription drugs a few years ago. Today, I save more than 60 percent off US prices by getting all of my drugs overseas from International Drug Mart. Best of all, even my doctor is pleased with my health.

I agree with No More Expensive Drugs. Buy your drugs at foreign pharmacies, and take control of your budget and health back from big pharma.
