Mylan (MYL) CEO Heather Bresch admitted one of the reasons for such a cost hike on the American public is because they want to sell the EpiPen for a cheaper price in the rest of the world.
But she also acknowledged that high retail prices of EpiPens in the United States effectively subsidize the cost of the devices when they are sold in Europe, at just $100 or $150. Many of the countries there have government-run health-care systems that limit drug prices charged by manufacturers, unlike the U.S.

"We do subsidize the rest of the world... and as a country we've made a conscious decision to do that," Bresch said. "And I think the world's a better place for it."

She said country...did she mean company?

I propose we have a law requiring drug companies to charge Americans the "going rate" as they would charge around the world.

Company Gouging Price Of EpiPens Is A Clinton​Foundation Donor And Partner

EpiPen injections, which help stop potentially fatal allergic reactions, cost $57 in 2007. They now run $609. According to CNBC, the price of EpiPens has increased at a steady rate in those nine years.

As of May 2011, the price was $165. That rose to $350 in 2014 and $461 last year.

Other Democratic politicians are tied to Mylan. The company’s CEO, Heather Bresch, is the daughter of West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, a Hillary Clinton supporter.

Bresch became CEO of the company in Jan. 2012. Prior to that, she was a lobbyist for the company. She was appointed president in 2009.

She has seen her salary increase from $2.4 million since 2007 to $18.9 million last year, according to NBC.
