“These big drug companies can’t stand the thought of having to actually take a hard look at their drug pricing, so they’re spending literally as much as they possibly can – from very deep pockets I might add – to confuse voters and get them to stay home or vote No. They’re buying this election,” said Dennis Willard, spokesperson for Yes on Issue 2. “These are the same big drug companies who raised the price of EpiPens by hundreds of dollars, make Hepatitis medication prohibitively expensive, and used their considerable power and money to lobby Congress and create the opiate epidemic. They are not on the side of regular, working Ohioans.”
Big drug companies have spent over $62 million to lie and distort the truth about Yes on Issue 2, marking what is sure to be the most expensive statewide ballot issue campaign ever in Ohio.
