Cronyism in Government Created the EpiPen Price Hike

On Wednesday, the House Oversight and Government Affairs Committee held a hearing (more of a grilling) as Mylan’s CEO, Heather Bresch, the daughter of Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) took to the floor to give a defense of the EpiPen’s price hikes and to receive a verbal smackdown from an assortment of legislators.

The FDA's New Overreaching Regulations on Vaping Products Harm Public Health and Destroy Innovative Small Businesses

On August 8, the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) new rules on vaping products go into effect. Federal law gives the FDA the power to regulate “tobacco products,” and the new rules cover a long list of products that the FDA is now deeming tobacco products. In a leap of logic that only a regulator could understand, the FDA will apply its “tobacco” regulations to products that do not contain tobacco, such as e-cigarettes and other vaping products. How can this be possible? Well in the mind of a regulator in Washington, the idea that a product or activity might not be subject to regulation is a foreign concept.

USDA Spends $19.9M on One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish...Catfish?

The Senate recently passed legislation that would result in a minor victory against the regulatory state and for the legislative branch reclaiming its powers. The measure is now pending in the House, where Republican leadership should bring the measure up for a vote. What is the target of this unnecessary regulation? Catfish. Yes, catfish.

Regs on Eggs: Are You Pulling My Leg?

There are few objects more simple and elegant than an egg, but you’d never know that from the Byzantine way the government regulates America’s favorite breakfast food.

The FDA’s Looming Regulatory Onslaught Threatens the Freedom to Vape

Americans who are trying to kick their nasty smoking habit have found healthier alternatives in e-cigarettes and vapor products that could, quite literally, save their lives. But the bureaucrats at the Food and Drug Administration are trying to put this $3.5 billion industry out of business.

Biosimilars Bring Much-Needed Competition to Drug Markets

The high cost of medical care is one of the issues that most directly affect individuals and families. Historically, high initial investments in capital and a strict regulatory regime have effectively limited competition in many sectors of the medical industry. But thanks to advances in technology and a changing regulatory environment, some of that is starting to change.

The FDA Wants to Tell Us What Words Mean

The FDA is proposing a new regulation to define, and potentially ban, the use of the word “natural” in food packaging. Historically, there has been no official definition of the term, meaning that food companies can include the word on anything they like. It’s a marketing tool, rather than a genuine description of nutritional content.

Blame Government for High Drug Prices

Hillary Clinton is using a story about a hedge fund manager charging outrageously marked up prices for an AIDS drug as a springboard for her plans impose a new set of mandates on insurance and pharmaceutical companies. The story is upsetting, no doubt, but as usual, progressives miss the root of the problem, and try to treat symptoms rather than curing the disease.

Court Strikes Down the FDA's Speech Regulations

They say that knowledge is power, that knowing is half the battle; and the explosion of knowledge that has emerged in the information age has undoubtedly made the world and its citizens far, far richer. Knowledge saves lives and elevates people from rags to riches. You would think that government would then be interested in promoting the spread of knowledge to as many people as possible, to maximize well-being among its citizens. You would think wrong.

The 21st Century Cures Act will Lead to Huge Spending Growth

The House is getting set to pass the 21st Century Cures Act (H.R. 6). The bill has good intentions. It is trying to do great things by reforming the patent process to streamline the research and production of drugs - getting them to patients faster, which will save lives. Unfortunately, the bill also creates a new spending program with some dubious offsets that make the overall bill difficult for conservatives to support.
