Senator's daughter who raised price of EpiPen got $19 million salary, perks in 2015 - Chicago Tribune

From the article:

A standard 2-pack now costs between $600 to $700. The price has prompted outrage among many consumers who have taken to social media to complain that they can no longer afford the potentially lifesaving medicine.

"A trip to the ER is now cheaper. HOW CAN THIS BE??" one woman tweeted on Wednesday. Actress Mia Farrow weighed in: "Grandchild w severe allergies needs life saving #Epipen. Cost has soared. Luckily we can pay the $600. Impossible for many scared parents."

The contrast between Bresch's lavish lifestyle - her signature designer five-inch stilettos for example - and those of ordinary families struggling to afford the drugs her company sells is a theme that has come up again and again.
