AFP: Today is a Win for Patients who Need Access to Life-Saving Medications

Oct 28, 2021 by AFP

Arlington, Va. – Americans for Prosperity today issued a comment on the White House’s spending deal framework, which does not include plans to put the federal government in charge of prescription drug prices.

“We’re happy to see both parties agree that putting Washington in charge of drug prices would stifle innovation and lead to fewer life-saving cures,” said Dean Clancy, senior health policy fellow at Americans for Prosperity. “We agree that more can be done to make drugs more affordable but leaving patients with less access to the treatments they need is the wrong prescription. Congress should completely abandon this price fixing scheme and focus instead on ending the red tape that makes medications expensive to begin with.”
