Let's hope they lose big.

'The pharmaceutical company Merck on Tuesday sued the government over a federal law that empowers Medicare for the first time to negotiate prices directly with drugmakers.'

@cyrilpedia I hope they lose as well, but the christo-fascists on SCOTUS will probably invent some new reason why the government can't do its job.

@lednabm I hate to say it, but that's not an improbable outcome.

@lednabm @cyrilpedia

I don't understand why Merck would be against it

Negotiating directly with vendors is the reason we spend more than triple what our closest competitor does on the military
