Democrats remain fixated on prescription drug prices.
Last August, they managed to include price controls on drugs dispensed through Medicare in the Inflation Reduction Act. And they’re not done meddling.
Earlier this month, Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Texas, called on President Biden to unilaterally suspend drug patents in order “to address the crisis of unaffordable medicines.”
Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., has named drug pricing as one of his top legislative priorities in his new role as chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee.
