Okay. So we now go to what's happening in the Senate. It's a Senate showdown that could impact millions of Americans seven CEO's the biggest pharmaceutical companies will go in front of a Senate committee tomorrow for questioning over perpetually high drug prices, we are joined in the phone now. Okay. How are you? Fine. How are you? Good. Okay. So joy toes a little bit about what what is supposed to happen tomorrow. Well, the Senate finance committee, which is one of the more powerful committees that handles health in the United States. Congress is as you said gonna have the seven c- CEO's of seven of the largest drug companies up in front of them. And they're basically going to grill him about why drug prices are so high, and what why congress hasn't been able to really do anything about this. And these are names that we know like Pfizer and Merck. And when you see the TV ads this is the logo that shows up on the end of them. That's exactly correct. These are these are the companies that make you know, the drug drug industry is a little bit more diverse than it used to be we have companies making these biologic drugs, but of the the major brand name drugs you right and Merck. And chanson and Santa Fe and Astra Zeneca Caesar. These are companies that most people if they look at the labels on their bottles have heard of now there are some who are comparing happening tomorrow with about twenty five years ago when called before congress where the heads of the big tobacco companies, and that, of course, led to a lot of very significant changes in the way tobacco is branded sold and advertised in this country. It does this seem to be one of those kind of watershed event. Well, that's certainly the intent. And that's what I was actually at that hearing that tobacco hearing. I can't believe it was twenty five years ago time goes by. I would add that that it took congress a long time to actually pass legislation on tobacco. And in fact, what mostly happened was state attorneys general sued, and there was a big settlement. And that was really what changed the the tobacco landscape. So we'll we'll see what happens with the drug industry. One thing. That's for sure this is not the first time. Congress has tried to do something about drug prices. One of my colleagues are the story out today about drug price hearings from sixty years ago, where senators asked probably very similar questions that will hear tomorrow, which is why are your prices so high and how do you justify this? And what do we expect the pharmaceutical companies to say at some of us in? We saw this with the Mylan thing. Right. Was oh, we're caught up in these rebate programs. There's not too much. We can do. Well, the main thing they're going to say, which is exactly what they said sixty years ago is it costs a lot of money to develop drugs. It's very expensive. And we need the the money from the drugs that you make it to market to help pay for the losses. We incur on the drugs that don't make. To market. They'll talk about dry holes. I, you know, I've been watching this for thirty some years now, and they pretty much always say roughly the same thing. I think this sort of added caught up in the rebates is part of it. But I'm guessing that that a lot of these companies are going to say what they've always said, which is we make a saving product, and it costs a lot of money to make it and other countries we are limited to what we can charge. So basically, we charge what the market will bear accepted aren't there? True problems with that argument that they make one is that a lot of research on drugs is actually done at taxpayer expense through government agencies, and then the pharmaceutical companies and end up benefiting from that and profiting from that. And Secondly, a lot of the drugs in recent years that have escalated greatly and prices are drugs that are generic drugs that have been on the market for years and years and years and the pharmaceutical companies long ago recoup their development costs. Well, yes. And what they'll say. And that's the second part. That's absolutely the case. We're seeing this particularly these. As with insulin. Which is which is now a hundred year old drug. There were a couple of interesting stories recently about why it's so hard to have generic insulin. But there is some generic insulin. Basically, they've been raising the prices they'll say to pay for other drugs, not just for the to recoup the money from that particular drug to the government research. That's true. But it's not as true as some people think, and there are already laws that actually require drug companies to to pay back the government for the the research work that the government has done.
