(IJR) The company raised EpiPen prices, with the average wholesale price going from $56.64 to $317.82, a 461 percent increase, according to data provided by Connecture.
The company behind the price gouge is Mylan. Mylan’s CEO is Heather Bresch.
After Bresch raised the price on EpiPen, it impacted her paycheck big-time, going from $2 million to nearly $19 million per year — resulting in a 600 percent increase in Bresch’s salary.
As it turns out, Bresch is the daughter of Joe Manchin, a Democrat senator from West Virginia. In addition, Mylan donated a massive sum to the Clinton Foundation, via The Daily Caller:
“Clinton Foundation records show that Mylan has donated between $100,000 and $250,000 to the Foundation.”
Despite receiving funding for her foundation from Mylan, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has called the price hike “outrageous.”
Nice try, Hillary. How is it that everything bad in this world is somehow connected back to the Clintons or their “Foundation?”
