FTA:  "Democratic committee and subcommittee chairs say they plan to call on corporations to provide more information about how they price prescription drugs, health insurance plans and other goods and services that have soared in cost in recent years."

Uh, profit?

1.  Make widget
2.  Make sure everyone knows they must have widget
3.  Make life without widget unbearable/uncomfortable/impossible
4.  Buy politicians to ensure they also promote widget
5.  Price widget as high as you can to ensure majority of people buy new version of widget
6.  Buy Debauchery Island and live excessively

The government wants to know why the government built a system that lets - hell, encourages - companies rape people on health care costs?

It's curious that gas around here is $1.50 cheaper a gallon just one month after the recent election. Investigate all the bastards, but start with the oil/gas ones.

All it takes is a couple of Third Way Democrats in the Senate to vote with the Republicans to stop it. It'll be touted as a bipartisan rejection of government\socialist overreach into the private sector and those Democrats that voted with the Republicans will see a lot of dark money sent their way.

Yes, Chuck Schumer is definitely going to lead the charge against massive corporations. He's just wagging his mouth -- after the railway fiasco -- while poking his head around the corner as he strangles Elizabeth Warren to death.

Politicians are going to be real tough on the corporations that fund their campaigns.

I expect the Democratic Senate Majority to tackle corporate price gouging with equal fervor as they did voting rights and abortion rights.

Looks like they're going to take train rides together. That's where all the deals are made these days.

It's ducking insane that gas in Corvallis is 60 cents cheaper than McMinnville but both dropped stupid fast.

I would like a link, so I know it was talking about property taxes in NYC. It's almost like you were somewhat embarrassed to quote Jacobin.
