The owners of a company called Mylan, that manufactures the EpiPen, have enjoyed a monopoly in the epinephrine injector industry after its primary competitor, Sanofi’s Auvi-Q, issued a recall last year and got their hat.
What used to cost the consumer $100.00 in 2009 for a 2 pack, now cost $600.00 of the exact same thing. The ingredients in the life-saving pen cost in the neighborhood of under $1.00.
The Epi-pen is used combating allergic reactions from foods like — milk, eggs, fish, crustacean shellfish, wheat, soy, peanuts, and tree nuts when someone consumes them.
Because of the greed of the company, there are many families who have to choose between food and the lifesaving spear in a cylinder.
It seems like there are a lot of greedy – heartless thieves in the pharmaceutical industry.
This creep Martin Shkreli must be a distant cousin of the owners of Mylan. When the creep bought a company called Turing whose main product line was a drug called Daraprim (pyrimethamine) used for protozoal infections, he raised the cost of his product from $13.50 PER TABLET to $750 PER TABLET. The scumbag was quoted saying; he had no regrets regarding the increase.
I would love to slap the shit out of this sarcastic little bitch.
Thieves like this are not satisfied with making a fair to good return on their investment. Want they want and are doing to some very needy customers is, financially raping them. I guess when a person or company is a maggot, they do not have any sense of responsibility or empathy.
So much for compassion for your fellow man. Hopefully, Mr.Karma will come calling and they will get shafted at some point in the miserable lives, having to pay the price of being greedy pigs.
