Insane markup on new drug

Would you call a 279,000% markup price gouging or smart business? Gilead is a new Hepatitis C drug that will cost $84,000 for a 12-week course of treatment. In other countries this $1,000-a-pill costs $10 a pill. The owners of Gilead are in effect reaping a cash-cow bonanza by exploiting cash-strapped government programs, thereby making state programs a privately rigged market for them. This cold-blooded meanness is also taking severe advantage of AIDS victims in the process who are the target market for this drug. This side-effect ridden drug was approved by the F.D.A. back in December of 2013 and Gilead immediately announced the price of $1,000 per tablet. This is the most expensive drugs ever marketed with unbridled greed. Gee, I wonder why health care costs are breaking America’s wallets?
