A few salient points:
1) You do not have the right to life saving drugs. If you can afford them, you can have them. The .gov has no responsibility to step in and save your life.
2) A company has a responsibility to make money. That's what they do. It's not fair to a company that spends millions on research to have their cash cow sold at auction because someone else wants the milk.
3) This is a capitalist society. If I have something you want, you will pay me for it. It could be my time, my house or my knowledge, but nothing is free, unless I choose to give it away. The company is making as much of the drug as they can, so they are selling as much as they can. Supply and demand. If they were artificially depressing production output for profit, they should be hammered.
