Support Free Market Amendments to the Prescription Drug Pricing Reduction Act

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact members of the Senate Finance Committee and ask them to support two free-market amendments to the Prescription Drug Pricing Reduction Act (PDPRA). Both introduced by Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.), these amendments would prevent the U.S. federal government from seeking to lower drug prices by implementing price controls.

FreedomWorks' Dumpster Fire of the Month for June 2019: The Transparent Drug Pricing Act, S. 977

FreedomWorks’ activist-chosen dumpster fire of the month for May 2019 is the Transparent Drug Pricing Act, S. 977. Introduced by Rep. Rick Scott (R-FL), this is yet another proposal targeted at reducing prescription drug prices in America based on the faulty logic of international price controls. Among other substantive changes to public health regulations, S. 977 would mandate that U.S. prescription drug prices “may not exceed the lowest retail list price for the drug among Canada, France, the United Kingdom, Japan, or Germany.”

Issue Analysis

By Any Other Name: Price Controls are Price Controls

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.
