This is a *remarkable* sequence. Watch as @SecAzar tries to uncomfortably walk away from a flurry of questions about his role in overseeing insulin price gouging at Lily. @Maybarduk fills the silence by explaining the forms of legalized corruption that enable pharma profiteering.

When @NSmithHolt12’s son Alec turned 26 and aged off her insurance, the cost of his life-saving insulin shot up over 4 times. And because Alec made $40k/year as a restaurant manager, he didn’t qualify for subsidies or assistance programs. /2
That's key - The patent & licensing system is one weve created and one we CAN & MUST change so that insulin & many other essential medicines are not under endless patent protections & patients are not price gouged.

The silence is telling.

And now he’s in charge of it all. He never responds or addresses anything diabetes related that I’ve seen

This hard hitting journalism. There’s a saying in Hindi “100 sunar ki 1 lohar ki” meaning 100 hits by a goldsmith equal one hit by a blacksmith. Or 100 Loki punches= 1 From Hulk. You go Josh ! all power to you- your pieces are as hard Hitting as the Hulk.
