Yes, they should not allow companies to buy up patents and turn around and sell the drugs at ridiculous profit margins, especially drug research funded by the government. If the research is privately funded, that should not be as tightly regulated.
The FDA is a joke and, in many ways, makes it very difficult for any competition the exist. This, and the existence of third party payments enable the sole proprietor of the pharmaceutical agent to charge essentially what he wishes.
It is unfortunate I have to answer YES for this question, as I am a huge proponent of the free market, but pharmaceutical companies are corrupt and charge unethical, inhumane prices for drugs people need to live. It must be stopped.
