Pharmaceutical giant fraudulently puts Profits Over People

{
}

­One giant pharmaceutical company just got busted for putting profits  ahead of peoples’ lives. In the largest healthcare fraud settlement in  U.S. history, British drug maker GlaxoSmithKline was slapped with $3  billion in fines after pleading guilty to a number of criminal and civil  violations related to 10 drugs the company produces that are taken by  millions of Americans.

The company illegally promoted the use of  anti-depressants like Paxil and Wellbutrin for unapproved uses. It also  failed to report safety problems with its drug Avandia after it was  discovered it could substantially increase the risk of heart attacks. On  top of that, the company defrauded taxpayers by over-charging the  Medicaid programs for drugs – and routinely gave kickbacks to doctors  who prescribed their medicine.

Glaxo’s CEO apologized for the  crimes and claimed his company learn from their mistakes. But how long  until the American people learn that profiteers and hucksters have no  place in our nation’s healthcare system?
