The drug company is being singled out because it is a monopoly that is blatantly rubbing our noses in the fact that it can charge whatever it feels like for a drug that was at least partially funded by taxpayer dollars. Even though in this case the final cost is not as high as it could have been, it's just another example of for-profit healthcare driving healthcare costs totally out of control.
The most ridiculous part of the whole thing is Gilead justifying their cost by comparing it to supposed healthcare cost savings. That's like charging $100,000 for an oil change because it saves you from buying a new Mercedes. Who do they think they're fooling? Especially when the entire healthcare cost structure they're comparing it to is extortionist in the first place.
