Enough. 92% of Americans support allowing the federal government to negotiate prescription drug prices for seniors on Medicare Part D. We need to act on my bill (33 cosponsors so far!) to make it happen.
Enough. 72% of Americans support the purchase of prescription drugs – with the same dosages & safety standards – imported from Canada. It’s time for Congress to act on my bill with @SenJohnMcCain to allow safe, affordable prescription drugs from Canada.
Enough. 87% of Americans want to make it easier for generic drugs to be released. Congress must support my bill w @SenatorLeahy to give generic drug manufacturers access to research & my bill w @ChuckGrassley to stop payoffs to generic drug makers to keep products off the market.

When prices of the top best-selling drugs are skyrocketing, we cannot afford to put a former pharmaceutical executive in charge of our top health agency.
