Dozens of Lawsuits Filed Alleging INEXCUSABLE Collusion Between Drug Companies

Big Pharma

For many Americans, the healthcare industry has surpassed even Big Oil as perhaps the most vile and conniving crew on Capitol Hill.

And it wasn’t just Obamacare that sent the US citizenry spiraling into anger, although that racket was pretty slick in and of itself; forcing the taxpayers to buy into a private industry who can easily manage market value by coordinating price points.

No, the Big Pharmaceutical barons are truly the harbingers of health doom these days, constantly pressuring doctors and hospitals to prescribe more of their products to, in turn, reap the profits.

As if Americans weren’t unhappy enough with this setup, we now have evidence of price-fixing within the generic drug market.

Executives at more than a dozen generic-drug companies had a form of shorthand to describe how they conducted business, insider lingo worked out over steak dinners, cocktail receptions and rounds of golf.

The “sandbox,” according to investigators, was the market for generic prescription drugs, where everyone was expected to play nice.

“Fair share” described dividing up the sales pie to ensure that each company reaped continued profits. “Trashing the market” was used when a competitor ignored these unwritten rules and sold drugs for less than agreed-upon prices.

The terminology reflected more than just the clubbiness of a powerful industry, according to authorities and several lawsuits. Officials from multiple states say these practices were central to illegal price-fixing schemes of massive proportion.

And the angry villagers marching toward the proverbial prescription mansion are gaining steam.

What started as an antitrust lawsuit brought by states over just two drugs in 2016 has exploded into an investigation of alleged price-fixing involving at least 16 companies and 300 drugs, Joseph Nielsen, an assistant attorney general and antitrust investigator in Connecticut who has been a leading force in the probe, said in an interview. His comments in an interview with The Washington Post represent the first public disclosure of the dramatically expanded scale of the investigation.

The unfolding case is rattling an industry that is portrayed in Washington as the white knight of American health care.

“This is most likely the largest cartel in the history of the United States,” Nielsen said. He cited the volume of drugs in the schemes, that they took place on American soil and the “total number of companies involved, and individuals.”

Side effects of the case may include nausea, headaches, and anxiety for those within the pharmaceutical industry.

CNN Medical Analyst Wants To Cancel Christmas: ‘We Just Can’t Do It This Year’

Well, it seems the radical left in this country, especially the folks who work for mainstream media outlets, are just chomping at the bit to ruin the holidays for everyone, which isn’t all that surprising given how much they seem to hate the reason for the season in the first place. CNN medical analyst, Dr. Jonathan Reiner, appeared on the network where he said that “we just can’t do” Christmas “this year” because of the coronavirus. “So the next big holiday is obviously the Christmas, New Year’s holiday where people tend to travel, want to travel, want to be with family, but we just can’t do it this year. We’re going to cause needless deaths and particularly that’s among people we really care about, you know, our most vulnerable, our grandparents, our parents, our neighbors,” the doctor said. “We can’t travel this year. We need to stay home. This is a sacrifice that Americans can make and we should be making it for each other. Stay home, mask up, we’ll have a great series of holidays next year. We’ll really have something to celebrate next year,” Reiner stated. via Daily Wire: Reiner also said anyone who traveled for Thanksgiving “should be quarantining.” “They should be quarantining for probably seven to 10 days and then getting tested. That’s what they should do. If they just go back to what they were doing — going back to work, they are going to spread the virus. So much of this virus is spread by asymptomatic folks. So stay home for more than a week, get tested, then go back to work,” he said. “This virus is, you know, no longer isolated to certain enclaves in the United States. It’s all over the country. And when people travel from place to place, they just…

Moderna Files For Emergency Approval For New Coronavirus Vaccine

Published

on

Moderna released a statement on Monday saying they are going to ask the Food and Drug Administration to give emergency approval to its new experimental COVID-19 vaccine. This makes Moderna the second company to file this request, following hot on the heels of Pfizer who filed their application earlier in the month. Moderna stated that new data shows their vaccine as being 94.1 percent effective in preventing COVID-19 infection. Pfizer’s effective rate was 95 percent. via Daily Wire: “We believe that our vaccine will provide a new and powerful tool that may change the course of this pandemic and help prevent severe disease, hospitalizations and death,” Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel said in a statement. Bancel said last week that 20 million doses will be available by the end of the year. The FDA’s vaccine advisory committee is set to meet Dec. 17 to review data from the two companies. Pfizer said on Nov. 9 that its developmental vaccine for COVID-19 may be 90% effective at inoculating people against the disease. The rate of effectiveness was calculated by analyzing early data from 94 trial participants in a study involving 43,538 subjects from all over the world. The small early sample means that the protection rate could change by the time the study ends and all the participants are accounted for, according to the AP. One of the major differences between the two vaccines is that the one being produced by Moderna does not need to be put in sub-zero storage, while Pfizer’s does. This makes the Moderna vaccine much easier to distribute. A third vaccine is also in the works from AstraZeneca and Oxford University. This particular vaccine is said to be 90 percent effective. Guess now we’re just playing the waiting game to see which of these companies gets approved first. They…
