The Brilliance Of Our Elite Knows No Bounds: Let's Force People To Subsidize "Epi-Pens," Because Doing The Wrong Thing Is Better Than Doing Nothing!

Instead of decreasing the barriers to entry into the business of making emergency injectable epinephrine, the Mandarins in Illinois have decided to shift the costs to the insurance companies who, since they are known for their benevolence and interest in their customers, will never shift that additional cost to the people who actually pay for health insurance, mainly you and I.

What's that? Your health insurance is paid for by your employer? Try again. Your compensation includes all costs of your employment, and that includes health insurance.

Illinois becomes first state to require insurers to cover EpiPens for kids, but questions remain about costs

Costs? Epinephrine can be manufactured relatively easily, so I'll bet the costs are overwhelmingly regulatory and legal. How about writing a law that shields new "Epi-Pen" manufacturers from some of the insane lawsuits and even more insane regulatory hurdles they must leap before producing a single batch?

Or does the idea of a market economy make you look like you just got out of a cold pool....
