Regarding Pharmaceuticals the only difference between him and other companies is that he didn't have a PR team. And more important medicines than Daraprim are ruining life the life of people and Congress doesn't do anything because it's more difficult.

I think that guy deserves what he got; but it bothers me when justice is only applied to one person. Because then I don't know if it's really justice or just a witch hunt.
