- March 1, 2016

In A New Ad, Clinton Attacks Valeant Pharmaceuticals For Its Price Hikes, Saying She Will Go After Their "Predatory Pricing" And "Make Sure It Is Stopped." CLINTON: "This is a letter from someone who is here, she has to take a brand name drug, but take it since the early 1980s, at that time, it costs approximately $180 for 10 shots. The latest refill, was $14,700 for the same ten vials. The company is called Valeant Pharmaceuticals. I'm going after them, this is predatory pricing, and we are going to make sure it is stopped." (Hillary For America TV Ad, " Predatory," 3/1/16)

Donors Can Give "Six-Figure Contributions To The Hillary Victory Fund…" "Reformers complain that the new rules have already changed Washington ethics.
