WASHINGTON, D.C. — Following the vote in the House of Representatives on Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) socialist price control bill, H.R. 3, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks’ president, commented:
“Today’s vote on H.R. 3 is incredibly disappointing, and it shows how radical House Democrats have become. As Rep. David Schweikert recently said, ‘There are cures coming that would not happen under H.R. 3.’ He’s absolutely right.
“Importing socialist price controls from Europe will reduce innovation in the pharmaceutical industry and harm the development of future cures. It will also decrease the speed of access patients have to existing life-saving care. H.R. 3 is House Democrats’ downpayment on a single-payer healthcare system in which private insurance is virtually eliminated.
“House Democrats need to put their destructive socialist agenda aside and focus instead on what truly benefits patients in healthcare: choice, accessibility, and innovation. H.R. 3 accomplishes none of these.”
