The price-gouging CEO that raised the cost of lifesaving drugs from $13.50 per pill to $750 per pill decided to jump into the political arena by making a donation to Bernie Sanders' campaign.
The man who has become the public face of rising drug prices says he has donated to presidential candidate Bernie Sanders — who has been bashing Big Pharma on the campaign trail — to try to get a meeting so the two can talk it out.
Sanders isn’t interested. His campaign said Thursday that he’s giving the money to a Washington health clinic instead — and the drug executive isn’t getting the meeting.
They don't even try and hide it anymore in the age of Citizens United. Want access, give a lot of money. And I do mean a lot. At least, that's what they think will buy them access. In this case, it bought a health clinic some extra supplies.
Good for Bernie.
