Bernie Sanders, Healthcare Activists Slam Big Pharma’s Greed as Many Americans Die or Go Untreated

HeadlineSep 22, 2021

Senator Bernie Sanders joined healthcare advocates at a protest outside the headquarters of Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America — one of Big Pharma’s top lobbying groups — demanding an end to the for-profit drug industry and for drug corporations to stop meddling in Congress. This is Senator Sanders.

Sen. Bernie Sanders: “While the pharmaceutical industry charges us the highest prices in the world, while one out of four Americans cannot afford the medicine they need, what we are seeing is that every year the drug companies are making outrageous profits and are paying their executives obscene levels of compensation.”
