Want to raise the rate of EpiPens? Now you can make it take place.

A brand-new video game lets you be Heather Bresch, the CEO of the pharmaceutical business Mylan, which came under fire just recently for its organized hikes to EpiPen costs.

The satirical video game is from GOP Arcade , a website that makes video games connected into politics and news.

In EpiPen Tycoon, you, as Bresch, need to raise the cost of the EpiPen to obtain the greatest wage possible.

Depending on exactly what you do to the cost, outrage either grows amongst the general public or amongst your financiers. To stop public outrage, you can release useful alternatives like “Call Senator (Dad).” (Bresch’s dad is West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin.)

But if you do not keep the rate high enough, you’ll get fired.

At the exact same time, consumers having allergies to bee stings or peanuts stroll into Mylan’s workplaces. When the rate is workable, they purchase EpiPens. They pass away when it gets too high.

Mylan raised the rates of the EpiPen from approximately $50 each in 2007 to $600 for a two-pack today. After sustaining public outrage and queries from Congress throughout back-to-school season last month, when lots of moms and dads needed to purchase EpiPens for their kids, the business revealed it would take some actions to reduce the expense of EpiPens for households.

The costs, nevertheless, are still triggering alarm amongst legislators and moms and dads, and Bresch is still in charge at Mylan. Although she might have lost in EpiPen Tycoon.
