Seniors Applaud President’s Proposal Allowing Medicare to Negotiate  for Lower Rx Drug Prices

It’s long past time for Congress to acknowledge the hard truth that the sky-rocketing cost of prescription drugs is hurting average Americans and our federal budget.

On behalf of the millions of members and supporters of the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare, I write to enthusiastically endorse your bill, H.R. 4207, the Medicare Fair Drug Pricing Act.  Your legislation would allow the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to negotiate prices with pharmaceutical companies when drugs lack sufficient competition.
