Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., is calling a company's decision to price at $375,000 a year a drug that was previously offered free to those with a rare autoimmune disorder “an immoral exploitation of patients who need this medication.”

In a letter addressed to Catalyst Pharmaceuticals CEO Patrick J. McEneny dated Feb. 4, 2019, Sanders called the change, “a blatant fleecing of American taxpayers” adding "I am profoundly concerned that Catalyst's actions will cause patients to suffer or die."

Another reason for a single payer system for prescription medication.
