Drug Price Controls: On 9/13, Let's End the Indefensible 9-13 Small Molecule/Large Molecule Protection Disparity

In recent days, we at CFIF have marked the ignominious one-year anniversary of the Biden Administration's misnamed "Inflation Reduction Act" (IRA) by noting its particularly negative impact on pharmaceutical innovation and, in turn, the nation's health and wellbeing.

As acknowledged by the United States Senate Committee on Homeland Security  as well as groups like the American Cancer Society, Americans are already confronting alarming and unprecedented drug shortages in the wake of the IRA.

To mark today's date of September 13 - or 9/13 - it's appropriate to note a different but significant 9-13:  That refers to the indefensible distinction that the IRA makes between what are known as "small-molecule" and "large-molecule" drugs.

A California man sued a Montana Guide Service after he was "slapped by a bear."
Virgil Massey of Barstow, Calif., sued the Church Universal and Triumphant and Montana Guide Service in 6th District Court.  Massey claims that while on a 2007 hunting trip on the religious group's land, a guide left him on a ridge top to watch for elk while the guide accompanied a second hunter to a deer he had killed about 400 yards away.  On his way back to Massey, the guide heard a gunshot, then found Massey on the ground and injured.  Massey told him he had been "slapped by a bear."
In court documents, Massey alleges the outfitter did not give him proper training on how to deal with bears or provide him with pepper spray or a handgun for protection. Massey is suing for past and future medical expenses as well as other damages.
According to news reports, it does not appear the State of Montana requires licensed Montana guides and outfitters to have any special training about bear encounters or how to use firearms for self-defense against bears.
