Lowering the Cost of Prescription Drugs

We must address the skyrocketing cost of prescription drugs.  In Congress, I will work to require Medicare and Medicaid to negotiate for lower drug prices and require pharmaceutical drug companies to justify their prices by disclosing expenditures on R&D. 

I also believe that the U.S. should allow residents to import cheaper drugs from other countries, like Canada (subject to safety controls), in order to bring consumer costs down, especially for our seniors, who this impacts the most.
