    Pigs get fat but hogs get slaughtered. Gilead is being a hog and this proves that there should be limits to what pharmaceutical are allowed to charge. Republicans complain about the price of Obamacare, but they protect such pricing by pharmaceuticals which shouldn't be allowed. Forcing insurers to cover the insane cost of this medication will add Billions to their premiums which you and me will be paying even though we don't have Hep. C.

    Gimme a break, Gilead. Pricing this drug like a mortgage is outrageous by any reasonable standard. The underlying problem is that Gilead paid $11 billion dollars for rights to the drug, a foolish amount to pay for any one chemical compound. Insurance companies and many doctors are against it. Shame on Gilead, a company that has done so much for patients with HIV.
