Coddled Drug Companies

The lucrative U.S. drug industry — coddled with tax credits, free transfer of almost-ready-to-market drugs developed with U.S. taxpayer dollars via the National Institutes of Health — charges Americans the highest prices for drugs in the world and still wants more profits. Drug companies no longer produce many necessary medicines like penicillin in the U.S., preferring to pay slave wages abroad to import drugs back into the U.S.

In addition, the drugs manufactured in India and the drug testing are poor quality since they are not subject to FDA (Federal Drug Administration) inspection.
