    Back when gasoline prices had just jumped into the $3/gallon mode, Exxon was attacked by the govt.

    Fast forward to today and Exxon is trading some 100% higher, still making a ton of money and paying a hefty dividend. Moral of the story, people hem and haw but eventually pay for what they need.

    • Competition in the market will ultimately determine the price of HVC drugs. The number 1 rule of capitalism is make as much money as you can, while you can. Gilead was right to start with a high price. They would still be getting the same complaints and condemnations if they priced the drug at $42,000 vice $84,000. The management of Insurance companies would be doing the same thing as Gilead if they were able to.
