The highest score in the Prescription Justice Congressional Report Card on Drug Prices – 100 – goes to Representative Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), with a grade of A+. The only other A+ in the House goes to Rep. Perter Welch (D-VT), who landed a score of 99.5.
Rep. Tom Malinowski (D-NJ7) is one of a very small number of members of the U.S. House of Representatives to receive an A- in our Congressional Report Card on Drug Prices. Only 16 other House members received an A-, A or A+. The congressman’s high grade is based on his voting record and because he has taken the Prescription Justice Pledge, proclaiming support for the Prescription Justice Policy Platform on lowering drug prices. We applaud Rep. Malisnowski for his actions to help end the crisis of high drug prices in America!
Prescription Justice has graded all members of Congress in a drug prices report card. Some people are dismayed that Speaker Nancy Pelosi received an F. After all, didn’t she roll-out and shepherd H.R. 3, the Elijah Cummings Lower Drug Costs Now Act, through the House and vociferously called for its passage on the House floor, as read on the Speaker’s website. So, what happened to her grade? A lot of Rep. Pelosi’s F has to do with her role as Speaker and how it differs from all other legislators.
