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 man is suing New York City for $2 undecillion, an amount recognized as more money than there is on Earth.

After allegedly being bitten by a rabid dog on a city bus, Anton Purisima has filed a lawsuit in Manhattan seeking $2,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. According to news reports, Purisima is suing as a result of the dog bite and the fact that a couple took unauthorized photos of him while he was being treated at a local hospital.  In addition to New York City and Metropolitan Transportation Authority, Purisima is suing two New York hospitals, Kmart, LaGuardia Airport, a bakery and the dog's owner.

Purisima claims in his lawsuit that the pain and suffering he has endured cannot be measured in money and is therefore "priceless."

This is not Purisima's first day in court; Purisima has filed lawsuits in the past against Wells Fargo, JP Morgan, Wachovia and the People's Republic of China.

That is unmistakably the case as crime, particularly violent crime, is exploding all over urban America…[more]
