They would only be able to include the price they charge to drug store chains, which isn't necessarily the price we pay at the counter.
    You could easily just make it an average MSRP price. You could even do an "Average MSRP without Insurance" and "Average MSRP with insurance"

    The missus’ dad was a muckety-muck in a nationally known pharma company. He was always opposed to direct advertising to the public.

    There was a time when advertising had some guidelines. Once lawyers were not able to advertise. In early advertising, there was some class. The competition was not mentioned by name, the admen had to be creative.

    Roberts has ruled both in their favor and not in their favor on issues. You are just looking to play that old standard, the conservative victim card.

    And it would be meaningless. Ultimately.. this was a meaningless gesture on the part of the president to look like he was "doing something"...
    So we should put you down as supporting putting GPS trackers in everyone to "save lives"?
