A recent column, "The myth of cheap drug imports," by Wayne Winegarden, is irrelevant to our problem. Forget imports. The way to have cheaper drugs is for our government to step in and tell the drug companies what is a reasonable profit.

Drugs are not diamond bracelets or exotic race cars. Oftentimes, they are the difference between life and death. Every business needs to make a profit, but drugs is one business from which companies should not be allowed to make a killing. They should also not be allowed to advertise prescription drugs, something that adds to drug costs.
