Wyden Says EpiPen Maker May Owe Taxpayers Money

Sep 6, 2016

U.S. Senator Ron Wyden, D-Oregon, says the maker of the allergy drug EpiPen may owe taxpayers a lot of money for failing to reimburse Medicaid properly over the past decade.

Ron Wyden, D-Ore., became the first U.S. senator to be elected entirely by mail when he was voted into office in 1996. Tuesday he told reporters he wants the vote-by-mail system to be expanded nationally, at least for federal races.

Wyden has tried unsuccessfully to get similar bills through Congress before, but he’s bringing it up again now because of long lines at polling places during this year's presidential primary season.
