Pharma whines their bills won't be paid in full

Now that excessive hospital billings are getting some press maybe Journolist, or those masquerading as them, can stop writing articles about the high out of pocket cost of Rx and start asking why the Rx are so expensive to start with:

"Cancer patients could face high costs for medications under President Barack Obama's health care law, industry analysts and advocates warn."

Some exchange plans might require members pay 30% of drugs that cost $10K per month and this concerns the pharmaceutical companies. All of us should be concerned about the other $7K we are paying.  The expanded marketing of Enbrel which can cost a couple thousand a month should also be of concern to all of us.
