The Food and Drug Administration has a "sweetheart deal" with one pharmaceutical company to market the drug--meaning the cost stays high because there are no generic versions available.

Noted and signed, thanks. I'm pretty sure that this "sweetheart" deal is not limited to One Big Pharma Company.
They won't let meds become generic until their patents expire. $$$$

I wondered why the administration suddenly caved on making this available to all ages. Well, this explains it doesn't it? They thought they could look good without actually making anything available to anyone who isn't rich (which as we know is most of us). Do they think we are stupid? Wait - no, don't answer that. I already know. P.S. Sue is right on also.

Didn't we go through this with the drug Makena, the drug used to prevent premature birth in high-risk mothers? There's a reason why the anti-monopoly laws were so necessary, and that's because COMPETITION IS GOOD FOR THE CONSUMER. Why should we have to pay out the . . . uh, ear . . . for a drug, just because one company has a *monopoly* (there’s that word again!) on the drug? The FDA is supposed to PROTECT the American consumer--apparently the FDA has forgotten that!
