Who is Kirsten Gillibrand? She is a current Democratic senator from New York who is well known for being a part of the implementation of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t tell” policy. She’s also well known for a bill that she has repeatedly reintroduced on paid family leave.

What’s her significance? She is running for president in 2020 and has already announced her campaign.

What’s the deal with Big Pharma? Top line: People have to decide between paying for the medications that they need and putting food on the table...drug prices are insanely high and are just getting more expensive every month. Drugs for diabetes, arthritis, Parkinson’s, among thousands of others, are hundreds of thousands of dollars. There is report after report of people dying because they try to ration their medications to make it last longer.

Kirsten Gillibrand, a candidate running as a democrat on the platform of equality and guaranteeing health care coverage for first responders (and even fighting back against Big Pharma) is taking money from Big Pharma.

In fact, a top Pfizer (a healthcare company that is charging drugs at an exponential rate) executive is holding a fundraiser for Gillibrand at her home.

Pfizer has donated to no candidate more than Gillibrand. She has received over $45,000 more than any other candidate from the company. In 2018, she received over $80,000 from Pfizer.

Gillibrand says she is against drug price gouging and says she is against special interest money. But the proof is in the pudding.

Call on Senator Kirsten Gillibrand to disentangle from Big Pharma and stop taking money from them altogether. It is completely hypocritical of her to do anything else.
