Today, Prescription Justice announced that it has published a Congressional report card on drug prices. This first of its kind Congressional report card on drug prices can help voters and political organizations determine who they want to support in upcoming elections.
Earlier this week, Prescription Justice founder Gabriel Levitt published an article in The Nation entitled, “Is the FDA Misleading Congress About the Safety of Imported Medicines?”. While we advocate for policies and legislative reforms to bring down drug prices here in the U.S., the article highlights the fact that personal prescription drug importation is already a lifeline for millions of Americans who can’t afford their medications here.
U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was awarded a 5-Star rating from Prescription Justice for her full support of the Prescription Justice Policy Platform. These are commonsense and necessary policies to lower drug prices here at home and expand access to lower cost medication from pharmacies in other countries.
We are pleased to announce that U.S. Senator Angus King (I-ME) has received the Prescription Justice 5-star rating based on his full support of the organization’s Policy Platform to lower drug prices here and expand access to safe and affordable medication from other countries. Senator King’s 5-star rating reflects his unwavering support of commonsense policy solutions to end the prescription drug affordability crisis.
Prescription Justice has endorsed Ryan Watts for the U.S. House of Representatives in the 6th District of North Carolina based on his pro-patient/pro-consumer stance to address the prescription drug price crisis in America.
