Regulation, Republican-style

Also of note, the federal government is "is asking a Tulsa court to shut down R-X Depot, a company that helps consumers import cut-rate prescription drugs from Canada (link)."

Now let's think about that. Republicans, who despise regulation, wish it now because the free market's working a little too well. Americans, royally shafted by prescription drug prices, have decided to take their business elsewhere. But corporations like the enormous profits Americans deliver--and they want to protect that plump market. So now the federal government is getting involved in regulating the market--to aid in the shafting of American consumers.
