Money well-spent?

NCPA June 9, 2021

According to STAT News (subscription required), more than two-thirds of Congress received political donations from the pharmaceutical industry during the 2020 election cycle. That includes 72 senators and 302 representatives, with funding totaling $14 million. Pharma donated to a range of candidates but focused donations on members of Congress who serve on committees that work on health care legislation. In related news, The Hill reports that Senate Democrats are crafting their own proposal to lower prescription drug prices as an alternative to the House plan. Some doubt that the far-reaching House bill can get support from all 50 Senate Democrats.
