Are Drug Prices Higher Because Congress Has Invested in the Stock Market?

Thom plus logo According to BuzzFeed News, the heads of the Kochhead caucus in Congress, Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows, are advising pharmaceutical companies to refuse to cooperate with Congress itself. The reporting indicates they're doing this because of their concern about the company's testimony's impact on the company's stock prices.

We don't know if this is because these members of Congress own stocks in these companies, or if they are concerned about their affect on the larger stock market, which their lord and master Donald Trump constantly points to as an indication of his extraordinary success. In either case, members of Congress helping cover up major rip offs of the American public is wrong.

Members of Congress should not be counseling corporations to refuse to cooperate with Congress.

From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"If you wonder why and when giant corporations got the power to reign supreme over us, here’s the story."
Jim Hightower, national radio commentator and author of Swim Against the Current
From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Hartmann combines a remarkable piece of historical research with a brilliant literary style to tell the grand story of corporate corruption and its consequences for society with the force and readability of a great novel."
David C. Korten, author of When Corporations Rule the World and Agenda for A New Economy
