Where is the ou­trage?

Record Observer - - Opinion -

So where is the ou­trage now? It seems now that Congress is grilling the Ceo of My­lan be­cause of it’s ob­vi­ous greed in pric­ing Epipen. Now all of a sud­den when the pub­lic is out­raged the politi­cians have to make be­lieve they care and will ac­tu­ally do some­thing about drug com­pa­nies’ dis­tain for pa­tients who use their drugs.

It’s all about the money and for some rea­son which we all know is that money flow­ing into the cam­paign funds of Repub­li­cans and Democrats alike may come to an end if those same politi­cians ac­tu­ally do some­thing.

They can save money for tax­pay­ers by ne­go­ti­at­ing drug prices for Medi­care part D for one. They do it in the VA.

They slapped the wrist of Martin Shkreli for his com­pany, Tur­ing, for do­ing the same thing. Maybe if they ac­tu­ally pass some leg­is­la­tion will tax­pay­ers and pa­tients be­lieve that they care.
