Advocates hope shaming drugmakers discourages price spikes

(AP) Frustrated by the rising cost of prescription drugs, California health advocates hope sunlight and a dose of shame will discourage drugmakers from raising their prices too quickly or introducing new medications at prices that break the bank.
They're promoting legislation that would require drugmakers to provide advance notice before making big price increases. Pharmaceutical companies have come out in force against the measure, warning it would lead to dangerous drug shortages.
Community: Good luck with that, advocates. Don’t you know that greed is good, even when people have to die because of it?
