Congress made Martin Shkreli look like a jerk, but it bears responsibility for high drug prices
Members of the House Oversight Committee were probably giving each other high-fives Thursday for making Martin Shkreli look like a smug jerk under their questioning about the high drug prices at his former company, Turing Pharmaceuticals. You know what? He was a smug jerk, smirking through his appearance before the committee as he repeatedly pleaded the 5th Amendment. But the lawmakers should stick their glee in their pockets.
