Exposed! Big Pharma Launches Shady Propaganda Campaign

Klyn is just 30 years old and should be in the prime of her life.

But she’s fighting for her life instead.

Cystic fibrosis is slowly damaging her lungs – and if she doesn’t stay on top of it, it could kill her.

The only problem? The newest cystic fibrosis drug on the market costs a shocking $250,000 a year.

Klyn is the latest American being held hostage by a drug industry that cares more about profits than people.

But instead of helping people like Klyn, the drug companies are using their fortunes to launch a massive public relations campaign.

And it’s full of shameful lies they hoped you’d never hear about.

If anyone could use a PR campaign, it’s the crooks at Big Pharma.

Over the past couple of years they’ve jacked up prices on AIDS and cystic fibrosis drugs, and even EpiPens that could keep you from dying from an allergic reaction.

And lately they’ve been using shady overseas mergers to avoid paying billions in taxes.

But instead of actually FIXING all the damage they’re causing, Big Pharma is spending millions to convince you that they’re not corrupt.

Well, good luck with that.

The Pharmaceutical Researchers and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), which represents the drug companies, has just launched a multi-million dollar TV, print, digital, and radio campaign.

It’s designed to remind you of all the life-saving research that comes out of Big Pharma, and even features some Dillon Thomas poetry.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Listen, there’s nothing poetic about making EpiPens so expensive that parents have to worry about their kids dying from bee stings.

And there’s sure nothing poetic about taking billions in government grants and then doing everything you can to avoid paying a nickel in taxes.

That’s greedy… that’s pure evil… but it’s not poetic.

It’s no wonder President Trump said Big Pharma is “getting away with murder.” And he’s right.

And what about the idea that cutting-edge Big Pharma research is saving lives – which is the point of the whole ad campaign?

Pure baloney. The drug industry spends more on marketing than it does research – in fact, it’s not even close.

Setting drug prices in the six figures isn’t about saving lives – it’s about making cash, no matter who gets hurt in the process.

If you happen to catch one of these shameful commercials on your TV or radio set, do yourself a favor and hit the mute button.

And, in the meantime, President Trump has proposed new bidding rules to stop drug companies from over-charging. Contact your members of Congress and let them know you support the idea.
