OP-ED | Drug Affordability Requires Limits On Price Gouging

I have cystic fibrosis. I have been lucky enough to be around for the development and release of a handful of life-changing drugs in my time. Taking a pill that improves your quality of life makes it very hard for a lot of people to question the company that made it. They saved your life, so of course they deserve billions in profits. You wouldn’t be here without them. But they put a literal price on your life – in my case, over $330,000 a year.
