Drugmakers high on pricing

Regarding the front-page article ``Drugmakers' Plea: No Price Controls,'' March 21: Thank you for blowing the cover off the drug lobby. I agree that this industry needs price controls. Other industries have had to ``bite the bullet,'' but drug companies continue to charge prices that are way out of line, requiring the working class to go heavily into debt paying for medicine. Drug prices also are extremely hard on the elderly on fixed incomes. Of course drug companies oppose price controls. Why not, when they make so much money milking us?
