The Harvoni Scam

The chairman of the House Veterans' Affairs Committee Jeff Miller has accused the makers of hepatitis C drug Harvoni sofosbuvir of opportunism and price-gouging for charging the U.S. government up to $68,000 for a treatment regimen that costs about $1,400 to manufacture.
In an op-ed published Wednesday on, Florida Republican Rep. Jeff Miller condemned California-based Gilead Sciences Inc. for “picking and choosing” its pricing by customer or geographic area.
According to Miller, Gilead charges $900 in Egypt for the 12-week curative treatment but charges the Veterans Affairs Department between $40,000 and $68,000, depending on which of Gilead's treatments containing sofosbuvir — either Sovaldi or Harvoni — is used.
The irony, Miller adds, is that the man who led the scientific team that created sofosbuvir, Raymond Schinazi, is a senior research career scientist who has worked for the VA since the late 1980s.

Michele Rest needs to be at the end of a noose! 

Gilead spokeswhore Michele Rest defended the price and the company's billing structure in an email to Military Times last year. The cunt said, "the price reflects the value of the medicine."
No you fucking cunt. The price reflects what a depraved whore like you will do for money and in this case it is blood money. 
Forget the Muslims, cunts like Michele Rest are the real terrorists.

John C. Martin needs to be at the end of a noose!
