I must speak out about the writing by Yahoo! Answers staff: It sucks.
Judging by the incorrect word usage, I’d guess that the writer is not a native English speaker. Why do I think that? The CEO of Mylan testified before Congress. Neither the CEO nor Mylan can be accused of “speaking out,” which means to talk freely and fearlessly. Quite the contrary. The expression “in the recent years” isn’t familiar to me, but “in recent years” is. And people aren’t affected about an issue, but affected by one.
This writer just isn’t familiar enough with English to be let loose on the public without the support of a competent editor.
