Taxpayers Funded A Lifesaving Drug And Guess What Happened Next

Our nation pays - by far - the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs. As a result of these prices, nearly one in five Americans cannot afford to fill their prescriptions. At what point do we say our tax system, our publicly funded research and our patent system are not serving the public interest?

“The problems we face, did not come down from the heavens. They are made, they are made by bad human decisions, and good human decisions can change them.”
Bernie Sanders

“You can’t become a billionaire stepping over children sleeping on the street.”
Bernie Sanders, The Speech: A Historic Filibuster on Corporate Greed and the Decline of Our Middle Class

“The rich and large corporations get richer, the CEOs earn huge compensation packages, and when things get bad, don't worry; Uncle Sam and the American taxpayers are here to bail you out. But when you are in trouble, well, we just can't afford to help you, if you are in the working class or middle class of this country.”
Bernie Sanders, The Speech: A Historic Filibuster on Corporate Greed and the Decline of Our Middle Class
