It’s no longer business as usual in America. Let’s end business as usual in Washington.

We’re experiencing a deadly pandemic.

The United States is firing on all cylinders to fight it and find a vaccine.

But it does us no good if most American’s can’t even afford the vaccine or related treatments.

Even before the coronavirus outbreak reached our shores, President Trump called upon Congress to deliver a bill to his desk that lowers drug prices for Americans.

The Prescription Drug Pricing Reduction Act does just that.

It’s time to for Congress to support the American people.
