Big Pharma GOUGES Taxpayers with 400% Markup on COVID Pill

Heard the news about the new COVID pill in development? Could be an amazing step in fighting the coronavirus. The drug trials showed the pill lessened symptoms and the length of time a person was sick dramatically. Sounds like something that would help a lot of people, right? Maybe something companies should make for free or as cheap as possible?

But Big Pharma has other plans. Merck Pharmaceutical’s current price tag for the COVID pill includes a whopping markup of 400 percent. You read that right. Not four times higher or 40 times higher, but a 400 percent increase over cost.

The literally sickening plan could put the pill out of the reach of those without health insurance coverage. Of course, our government could get involved, but it seems like everything Biden touches becomes another crisis.

 

On top of that, the video highlights the research for the pill was tax payer funded. Your tax dollars paid to help fund the research so you can pay gouging prices to potentially save your own life.

You have to see the full report to realize how twisted awful Big Pharms has become. Make the time to watch the latest Breaking Points now.

  1. If you research it this pill is ivermectin in disguise because ivermectin is way cheaper then this new so called pull.

    1. Yes..and Fauci and Biden opposed it..let people die. Yet, Congress..over 200 including families and staff..idk if they were vaccinated because its not mandated to Congress..were treated with Ivermectin and the I-mask covid protocol by an in house physician…other doctors and scientists have been stating Ivermectin is a preventative and if taken everyday will prevent covid-19. But now they are promoting it in a “vivid pill.” And it costs alot..Pfizer has already bilked us of 7 billion dollars for their failed vaccine..lol..Just buy Ivermectin..its cheap..and works. Fauci, the CDC, Big Pharma, the FDA and the Marxist administration are full of sh*t..

        1. I still call it CHIcom flu, a lab manufactured thing designed and built to bring down the greatest President of our time.

      1. Polly You are right. Fauci and the NIH have caused thousands to die. Why aren’t they being held accountable? Over 30 studies showed that ivermectin was not only good at treating COVID, but was good at preventing people from contracting COVID. All these government officials who have made money in the pharmaceutical market should have to give that money to the families of the ones who died or have suffered side effects of this COVID virus and it’s “vaccines”.

    2. Proper research would have shown you that this new drug, Molnupiravir, is a nucleoside analog, whereas Ivermectin, created in the 1970s, is considered a macrocyclic lactone. The drugs are not made using the same chemicals, and react completely differently to the virus. They are not the same, and barely similar. I’ve confirmed this with biochemists with half a century of pharmaceutical experience.

  2. Just think: if Big Pharma had gotten their hands on the Salk vaccine, we would most likely still be using Iron Lungs.

  3. Surprised? Not even mildly. Big Pharma always puts Profit ahead of Ethics every single time. In fact, I seriously doubt Ethics and Morals are part of the Equation.
    Bend over and prepare to be Prison Fooked America, without benefit of Lubricant.

  4. Many years ago, when personal computers were just catching on, I worked for a company that wrote custom database software for various businesses, including many retail outlets. A price that was 400% over manufacturing costs was not uncommon. Jewelry outlets often sold their products for 900% over cost, while stereos and other electronic equipment just beginning to be made in China averaged about a five-fold increase, or 500% over cost. If our government really wants to reduce drug costs, they should force the FDA to open free markets to Canadian and European drug companies. We already know they meet our safety standards, due to temporary purchases permitted by the drug enforcement agency in recent past. It’s been a running joke for years that retirees often go to Canada for their prescriptions because they are cheaper, even with Medicare, because our Congress, in it’s infinite ignorance, prohibited Medicare from negotiating prices with our pharmaceutical manufacturers.

  5. The markup is high, but a 400% mark up is actually a price at 5 times cost.
    CALCULATION:
    mark up = (selling price-cost)/cost times 100% or (5-1)/1 x100% = 400%

  6. So, I read that the 400% markup could put the medicine out of reach for those without health insurance. Gee, I thought fraud fuhrer obama was going to give everybody insurance back in 2009?

  7. Destroying True Science
    The “woke” culture is a dynamic resulting in decades upon decades of communist training in America’s government schools. It has brainwashed our youth into promoting the destruction of liberty and individual freedom and is encouraged by our Pravda mainstream media.
    Covid-19 is the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on mankind. It is not about a pandemic. It is a virus that has never been isolated. Within the lungs of Covid patients, the only thing biopsies found were flu type A and B.
    Hospital protocols by the CDC, NIH, FDA, AMA and others, allow this virus to kill our elderly by withholding the combination of safe, cheap and effective drugs. Multiple physicians and scientists state that these drug combinations would have saved 86% of the comorbidity-ridden elderly in nursing homes. (The “useless eaters” are those Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel says should die at age 75.) Ezekiel works as advisor to Joe Biden on Covid, and was the top advisor to WHO’s president Dr. Tedros. The cheap and effective drugs of Hydroxychloroquine given daily or Ivermectin given weekly as prophylactics would have saved the elderly as it has done in countless other countries.
