EPA/FDA cartel at it again

Some days ago I posted a link showing how FDA increases prices of medications by regulation, while providing no additional benefit. (here it is for reference again if you haven't seen it already - they attempted to increase the price by 150 times : http://articles.latimes.com/2011/mar/09/news/la-heb-prematur...)

They are at it again, this time in cooperation with EPA. They are banning OTC asthma inhalers that used to cost around $20 to now buy other type which costs around $60 and will also require doctor visit (so yeah, another co-pay plus insurance for the visit):

Rand Paul op-ed in Washington Times: EPA regulations violate constitutional rights

This is from Thursday last week but I don't think it was ever posted here and it deserve some attention. Very good piece by Rand.
