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:

Of all new cancer drugs developed worldwide between 2011 and 2018, 96% were available to American consumers.  Meanwhile, only 56% of those drugs became available in Canada…[more]

A class action lawsuit seeking more than $5,000,000 has been filed against Vail Resorts, claiming it violated numerous California laws when it ended the 2019-2020 ski season early due to coronavirus.

The main plaintiff, Brian Hunt, a resident of California who purchased the annual Tahoe Local season pass for $499, filed the lawsuit “on behalf of all of Defendant’s customers nationwide that purchased annual passes for the 2019-2020 season to Epic Day Passes for the 2019-2020 season who, as of March 25, 2020, had not used up all of the days remaining.”

Hunt wants passholder fees refunded because he claims the pass, valid until June, lost value when the North American resorts closed for the season on March 17. “Plaintiff continues to face imminent harm, as the defendant retains annual passholder’s season pass fees while all of its resorts remain closed,” the lawsuit states.

According to news reports, among the allegations against Vail Resorts are a violation of California’s Consumers Legal Remedies Act (which protects the customer from product misrepresentation), a violation of California’s Unfair Competition Law, a violation of California’s False Advertising Law, as well as a breach of express warranty, negligent misrepresentation, and fraud.

"The only people who might better know the streets of urban America than the cops who patrol them are the crooks who haunt them. What can the criminals tell us now about the state of our cities? The crooks know that the streets and alleys are being returned to them and that the police are in retreat. That is unmistakably the case as crime, particularly violent crime, is exploding all over urban America…[more]
