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.

FreedomWorks' Bill of the Month for June 2019: The Prescription Drug Price Transparency Act, H.R. 1035

FreedomWorks is proud to announce that our bill of the month for June 2019 is the Prescription Drug Price Transparency Act, H.R. 1035, sponsored by Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.). The Prescription Drug Price Transparency Act would require greater transparency and accountability from pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs). This would lower prices for patients, families, and caregivers across the United States.

Issue Analysis

Drug Price Controls are Dangerous to Your Health

Almost all Americans want lower price prescription drugs, and it is indefensible that American consumers often have to pay higher prices than customers in developed nations around the world. This is especially intolerable given that most of the wonder drugs of recent years and decades that we pay more for have been developed on these shores.

Resisting Price Controls on Prescription Drugs

BY Adam Brandon

President Trump has made great strides in dismantling the big-government legacy of his predecessor, Barack Obama. Historic tax cuts, dozens of regulations cut for every new one implemented, and two conservative Supreme Court justices, to name a few.

The Illegal Pricing Index

The small area of sanity in our healthcare sector is now under threat, however. A new proposal by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), referred to as the International Pricing Index (IPI), would dramatically undermine American leadership in pharmaceutical innovation and risk patient access to life-changing and life-saving treatments.

Just Say No to Prescription Drug Price Controls

In a perverse misunderstanding of cause and effect, government regulators always seem to respond to their failures by calling for more of the same. If a policy fails to produce the desired effect, it must be because it didn’t go far enough. Education spending a failure? Spend more! Centralized health care costing too much? Centralize further! The ability to admit a mistake and reverse a bad policy seems to be one that government employees do not possess.
