Letter: Medicare should be able to negotiate prescription drug prices

Published: 10/13/2021 7:00:10 AM

Have you seen the ads and mailers against Sen. Hassan for her efforts to allow Medicare to negotiate prescription drug prices? These ads are funded by dark money groups orchestrated by Mitch McConnell. They want to scare you to think that you won’t be able to get your prescriptions if they negotiate lower prices for them. These false attacks against Sen. Hassan are desperate and ignore both facts and the views and interests of the American people.

Sen. Hassan is working to pass a budget that would expand Medicare coverage to include dental, vision and hearing and would reduce prescription drug prices. She is willing to stand up to drug companies. McConnell and his GOP allies backed by Big Pharma may feel threatened by that, but thankfully with Sen. Hassan, we have a senator who is committed to working across party lines to deliver results for New Hampshire and put the health care of seniors above partisan politics.
