Boycott of Glaxo urged by group of Illinois officials

QUOTE: An influential group of Illinois politicians wants to retaliate against GlaxoSmithKline PLC for trying to block senior citizens from purchasing cheaper drugs through Canadian companies.

ABSTRACT: Angered that the drug company GlaxoSmithKline PLC allegedly tried to block senior citizens from procuring inexpensive drugs from Canadian companies, a group of Illinois politicians organized a statewide boycott of Glaxo products. The politicians argue that Glaxo’s pricing is discriminatory against seniors. Employees at Glaxo, however, believe such a boycott would only hurt seniors for whom the medicines are vital.
