Clinton Takes Cash From The Drug Industry, Her Declared Enemy

- November 13, 2015

Clinton Rakes In Cash From The Drug Industry While Claiming The Industry Her Enemy. “Cash from drug companies poured in despite Clinton’s tough public stance on the industry. Last month, she unveiled a plan to combat rising drug prices by clamping down on the rules for pharmaceuticals. In last week’s Democratic debate, she listed off drug companies among the enemies she is most proud to have made in politics. Clinton has taken a harder stance on drug companies than any other candidate besides Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who has also skewered ‘Big Pharma’ as he seeks the Democratic nomination.” (Sarah Ferris, “Clinton Tops 2016 Field In Drug Industry Donations,” The Hill, 10/17/15)

“Hillary Clinton Has Received More Campaign Cash From Drug Companies Than Any Candidate In Either Party.” “Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton has received more campaign cash from drug companies than any candidate in either party, even as she proudly declares the industry is one of her biggest enemies.” (Sarah Ferris, “Clinton Tops 2016 Field In Drug Industry Donations,” The Hill, 10/17/15)

  • “Clinton Accepted $164,315 In The First Six Months Of The Campaign From Drug Companies, Far More Than The Rest Of The 2016 Field.” (Sarah Ferris, “Clinton Tops 2016 Field In Drug Industry Donations,” The Hill, 10/17/15)

Clinton Donors Include Bruce Cozadd and Robert McKague Two Senior Executives Of Jazz Pharmaceuticals Who Recently Imposed An 800% Price Hike On One Of Its Drugs. “The donors also include two senior executives of a company that recently imposed a massive price increase on one of its drugs… Clinton, like Sanders, has taken a hard line against the pharmaceutical industry. She has already outlined a plan to crack down on drug prices. At the same time, she has accepted significant contributions from individual donors. She received contributions, for example, from two executives at Jazz Pharmaceuticals, which raised the price of a drug used to treat sleep disorders by more than 800 percent, from roughly $2 to $19 a pill. Each of the executives, chief executive Bruce Cozadd and Robert McKague, a senior vice president, contributed the maximum individual amount, $2,700.” (David Nather, “Clinton Takes In Big Money From Drug Industry,” The Boston Globe, 10/16/15)
