Tonight, in Mineral Wells, Texas
When a @GregAbbott_TX supporter laughs, yes, laughs out loud so everyone could hear, while Beto described the massacre of 19 children and 2 teachers in Uvalde, Beto quite appropriately lets loose with a MF.
It was a pretty good one too.
It costs ~$70 to produce a year’s supply of insulin. Yet, the average annual cost of insulin went from $2,864 in 2012 to $5,705 in 2016 to $12,000 in 2022.
That’s a 17,142% markup.😳 That isn’t inflation. It isn’t supply chain issues. It is 100% corporate greed.
Also, those numbers seem entirely made up. There's a 2017 study that looked at the total cost of diabetes, and that puts the annual average per capita cost of insulin at 600USD. Which matches quite well with 2020 figures of on average ~100USD per vial.
