Bernie Sanders is always bragging that he is not financed by big donors and the lobbyists crowd, but instead by the grassroots with the average donor giving around $30. And by the looks of things, Sanders is apparently telling the truth.
The man who has become the public face of rising drug prices says he has donated to presidential candidate Bernie Sanders — who has been bashing Big Pharma on the campaign trail — to try to get a meeting so the two can talk it out.
Sanders isn’t interested. His campaign said Thursday that he’s giving the money to a Washington health clinic instead — and the drug executive isn’t getting the meeting.0
