Statement of Dr Diana Zuckerman: regarding the introduction of The Prescription Drug Affordability Act of 2015

Dr. Diana Zuckerman, PhD

We applaud Sen. Sanders and Sen. Cummings’ bill, which is tackling an issue of great importance to all Americans.  The cost of medications should reflect the value they provide, not “whatever the market will bear.”  We call on Congress to support these efforts and find a way to stop the epidemic of unaffordable medications.
