Tell Mylan: Lower EpiPen Prices!
For people suffering from life-threatening allergies, a device called the EpiPen can mean the difference between life and death. Just ten years ago, the EpiPen sold for roughly $57 apiece.
But Mylan, a pharmaceutical company, went on to purchase the rights to the EpiPen, and dramatically raised its price to more than $600 a pack.
This is just the latest example of regular Americans getting ripped off by greedy pharmaceutical companies. When companies like Mylan raise the price of life-saving medicines to pad their bottom line, it’s the health of our children, seniors, and working families that takes a hit. We simply cannot allow this to continue.
We need to fight against this cruel price-gouging. Join me: Add your name right now to tell Mylan to make the EpiPen affordable again!
Here’s the thing: It’s not just low-income patients who are being overcharged. Since Medicare and Medicaid cannot negotiate drug prices with pharmaceutical companies, every taxpayer ends up footing the bill for overpriced medicines. This is a great deal for Big Pharma – but the American people deserve better.
In Congress, I’ll do everything I can to ensure health care is affordable and accessible to working families. But we don’t have to wait to hold Big Pharma accountable and reduce the price of life-saving medicines. It’s time to take action: Sign this petition right now and tell Mylan to lower EpiPen prices!
