WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to the hearing today in the House Ways and Means Committee, “Pathways to Universal Health Coverage,” on single-payer health coverage, Jason Pye, FreedomWorks Vice President of Legislative Affairs, commented:
Many conservatives and right-of-center political analysts are rightly upset about Health and Human Service Secretary Alex Azar’s proposal to tie drug prices in the United States to those in foreign nations. Such a proposal would make our healthcare system dependent on the whims of nations that subscribe to command and control economic models. There is also the stark reality that imposing price controls does not fix any underlying issues that caused prices to be high in the first place.
FreedomWorks’ activist-chosen dumpster fire of the month for May 2019 is the Medicare for All Act, S. 1129, sponsored by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). Not only would implementing “Medicare for All” add upwards of $32 trillion to our federal expenditures -- It would also result in, as our own Dan Savickas noted in FreedomWorks Foundation’s recently released booklet on entitlement reform, healthcare for none.
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to President Trump’s criticism of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-Vt.) hypocrisy for refusing to pay more in federal income taxes, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:
Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., does not shy away from his socialist roots. Still, I’m sure his campaign is not pleased with the release of newly digitized newspapers and files from his tenure as a leading member of the Liberty Union Party in the 1970s.
