So how do you connive to get yourself a 1,000% raise? Well, if you happen to be CEO of a drug cartel, you jack the price of a lifesaving emergency medicine from $57 to $600. Patients be damned, you’re now making $1,500,000 a month!
So meet Heather Bresch:
Still think the legal drug cartels – with all those countless thousands of warm & fuzzy TV commercials – are looking out for you?
Not a chance. Your welfare ain’t the priority.
So what’s the difference between the “legal” drug cartels and those hiding out in Mexican jungles?
They have fewer guns but shinier offices.
