Dozens of Lawsuits Filed Alleging INEXCUSABLE Collusion Between Drug Companies

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

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.

Memorial Day is a time to remember those who have given their lives in the military so that we can be free. It certainly is not a day for politics. But “crooked” Hillary Clinton just couldn’t help herself. From Daily Wire: On Monday morning, former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton decided to celebrate Memorial Day, which honors the veterans who have fought for America, with a tweet that didn’t acknowledge their sacrifice but instead trumpeted her approval of New York governor Andrew Cuomo for his “responsible decisions to keep people safe.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/HillaryClinton/status/1264912356834004992?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1264912356834004992&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fhillary-celebrates-memorial-day-by-lauding-cuomos-responsible-decisions-ignores-military Here’s President Trump’s address from Arlington National Cemetery… https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1264964171457757184?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1264964171457757184&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftrump-praises-veterans-projects-optimism-in-memorial-day-public-address From AP News: NEW YORK (AP) — More than 4,500 recovering coronavirus patients were sent to New York’s already vulnerable nursing homes under a controversial state directive that was ultimately scrapped amid criticisms it was accelerating the nation’s deadliest outbreaks, according to a count by The Associated Press. AP compiled its own tally to find out how many COVID-19 patients were discharged from hospitals to nursing homes under the March 25 directive after New York’s Health Department declined to release its internal survey conducted two weeks ago. It says it is still verifying data that was incomplete. CONTINUED: Whatever the full number, nursing home administrators, residents’ advocates and relatives say it has added up to a big and indefensible problem for facilities that even Gov. Andrew Cuomo — the main proponent of the policy — called “the optimum feeding ground for this virus.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNflR2Ia7Hc WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=189&v=APHIYCsHqV0&feature=emb_logo https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1251181566740619265?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1251181566740619265&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2020%2F04%2Fnothing-sitting-home-watching-tv-governor-cuomo-attacks-president-trump-rips-cdcs-bogus-predictions-video%2F

Dem Governor’s Husband Demanded Special Treatment After Whitmer Told People to Stay Away From Lake

Facepalm!

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D) seems to be making headlines for all the wrong reasons, as of late. Therefore, it only makes sense that Joe Biden’s team is considering her for VP. Check out what Whitmer’s husband was recently caught doing, via Detroit News: The owner of a Northern Michigan dock company says Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s husband wanted his boat placed in the water before the Memorial Day weekend as Whitmer urged residents not to rush to the region. No longer visible to the public, Facebook posts from NorthShore Dock LLC and its owner, Tad Dowker, focused on what Dowker said was a request last week by Whitmer’s husband, Marc Mallory. The posts have drawn the attention of Republican state lawmakers, who said the Democratic governor’s family may not be following her guidance for the rest of the state. LOOK: https://twitter.com/RyanMaue/status/1265082748886228994?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1265082748886228994&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fwhitmers-husband-asked-for-special-treatment-in-getting-boat-on-water-after-she-urged-people-to-not-go-to-area-report-says More from TDW: NorthShore Dock LLC later wrote a post about the incident, saying: “We simply let him know— Sorry, we have a lot going on with very little time to get it done. We will get you in line to install as soon as we can, ALL our customers are valued and we cannot place you in front of others who scheduled earlier.” […] Whitmer also faced intense backlash after her administration awarded taxpayer-funded coronavirus stimulus funds to Democrat groups, a move that she later canceled. Later, when pressed about the issue at a press conference, Whitmer had to read from notes as she refused to identify who made the decision to award the contracts to those groups.
