CEO who gouged charge of EpiPen is daughter of Democrat senator

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — As a pharmaceutical corporation run through U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin’s daughter faces scrutiny for trekking costs on existence-saving allergic reaction injection pens, Manchin is final mum.

The Democratic West Virginia senator’s daughter, Heather Bresch, is CEO of Mylan, which manufactures EpiPens.

A two-dose package cost around $94 9 years in the past. The price averaged extra than six times that in May.

Manchin spokesman Jonathan Kott said Wednesday the senator had no remark.

Several senators are demanding greater data and asking for congressional hearings and investigations.

Sens. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut want the Federal Trade Commission to analyze Mylan for possible antitrust violations.

Hillary Clinton, whom Manchin has recommended for president, known as the growth “outrageous.”

A Mylan statement Monday mentioned medical insurance changes with better deductible expenses for many.
