WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott released the response from the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) to a letter sent by the Senator and colleagues last month asking that they provide solutions to address the rising cost of prescription drugs.
Senator Rick Scott said, “I want to thank PhRMA for their letter responding to the request from me and seven of my colleagues, in which we asked for information on their solutions to lower the cost of prescription drugs. Unfortunately, their response didn’t provide a single answer or solution to our questions. Not one. Families across the country are struggling to afford life-saving medication, and the industry cannot come up with one idea about how to lower list prices of prescription drugs. That’s unacceptable. This is a crisis that demands immediate attention. All talk, no action is the old Washington way – but not anymore. I’m focused on real solutions like my America First Drug Pricing Plan to address the soaring costs of prescription drugs right now.”
