Biden Drug Plan Would Slash Innovation and U.S. Consumer Access

Joe Biden's inexorable march toward the fanatical left continued this week, as he and Bernie Sanders (D - Vermont) introduced their "unity platform" in anticipation of this year's Democratic convention.  We can thus add weaker U.S. patents and drug price controls imported from foreign nations to Biden's existing dumpster fire of bad ideas.

Here's the problem.  As we've often emphasized, and contrary to persistent myth, American consumers enjoy far greater access to new lifesaving drugs than people in other nations, including those in "other advanced economies" (Biden's words) whose price controls Biden seeks to import:

A Los Angeles, California, man is suing actress/singer Jennifer Lopez, claiming she duped him into sending her naked photos.

Rodrigo Ruiz has filed suit seeking $10,000 in damages for sexual harassment.  According to news sources, Ruiz submitted a demo tape to someone he believed was in Lopez' camp and thereafter received several follow-up letters asking for more demo tapes and naked photos.  Ruiz claims the letters led him to believe that he had a chance at a music career and a romantic relationship with Lopez. Now Ruiz says he is depressed and in need of professional help.

As it turns out, the mailing address Ruiz sent the materials to was a P.O. box owned by a 53-year-old Los Angeles woman.

A representative for Lopez told TMZ, "This is a small claims matter that appears to be a desperate attempt for notoriety. Ms Lopez has never seen or met the plaintiff, nor has she ever communicated with him. We believe this matter should be summarily dismissed."
