In Nashua, Hassan Touts Bill to Reign in Prescription Drug Costs

U.S. Senator Maggie Hassan was in Nashua Friday highlighting her new proposal to lower the cost of prescription drugs.

Under the measure, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services would be required to monitor pricing spikes to ensure drug costs arenít rising unfairly.

The bill would allow the department to negotiate prices for Medicare prescription drugs. It would also cap the amount of money patients and families can pay on prescription drugs annually out of pocket.

Hassan introduced the legislation this week.

8. Thank you, Senator Hassan!

 

Where are all the folks who were so excited about this issue? The proliferation of the "thank you Senator for addressing drug costs, you're so amazing and wonderful" posts?

I thought the issue was all important and we should be cheering on anyone advancing progress on it?

Guess not, ah well.

I'm truly grateful for Senators actually doing the work on issues that are important to Americans, we really do have to do more to address the actual costs of medical care and pharmaceuticals. Lip service is nice, but we need bills and legislation to actually get things done.

Go, Maggie!!!



Not so feeble after all, huh?
