Politicians on Capital Hill Debate How to Handle Prescription Drug Costs

Wednesday, June 13, 2018

 

It’s something that affects us all at one point or another, prescription drug cost. Today, the secretary of Health and Human Services was grilled on Capitol Hill about the issue. This comes just a month after President Trump announced an effort to reduce cost for all Americans. 

 

The Trump administration wants drug companies to be required to list their prices in television ads, but some democrats say not so fast, because the drug makers get tax breaks for those ads. 

 

The Trump administration fired back with a second strategy for the issue. Another one of Azar’s suggestions is to lower what Americans pay for prescriptions while requiring foreign countries to increase their share.
