BREAKING NEWS: H.R. 3, Speaker Pelosi’s radical price control scheme for prescription drugs, just failed in the Energy and Commerce Committee markup with a bipartisan vote.
To take down H.R. 3, Republicans led amendments to expose:
- Speaker Pelosi’s socialist price controls would result in fewer cures and treatments in America— eliminating hope for millions of people battling all diseases.
- H.R. 3 discriminates against people with disabilities and pre-existing conditions. It forces people to beg government bureaucrats for access to lifesaving and life-improving treatments.
- In H.R. 3, Democrats plan to use a budget gimmick to stop future savings for people’s insulin. They blocked a Republican-led amendment that would help lower diabetic patients’ out-of-pocket costs at the pharmacy counter by more than $900 a year.
Leader Cathy McMorris Rodgers: “Whether it’s ALS, Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s, Spinal Muscular Atrophy or another diseases, the hope for lifesaving treatments and cures is here in America. We must not forget that it is here that hope becomes a reality.
“America will not win the future, if Speaker Pelosi’s socialist price controls were jammed in the Democrat’s reckless tax and spending spree. It would lead to less innovation, fewer cures, and no hope for many people who deserve a fighting chance at life.”
For people like Khrystal Davis and her son Hunter this means a tomorrow full of HOPE that American will continue to lead the world in the development and discovery of new cures and treatments.
