US presidential candidate from Democratic party, Hilary Clinton, has announced to make a plan about pricing medicine.
After the news spread about a six decades old medicines price jumping overnight (from $13 to $750), the world stood shocked.
The democrat presidential candidate, and by many one of the favorites for winning the race, announced on her twitter account on Monday that she would make steps to take on price “gouging like this.”
Price gouging like this in the specialty drug market is outrageous. Tomorrow I’ll lay out a plan to take it on. -H https://t.co/9Z0Aw7aI6h

According to US media, the stock of the company that raised the prices of the drug, Biotech, has seen its stocks dropping after Clinton’s announcement.
We are yet to see what will further happen.
