Moderate House Democrats threaten drug pricing bill in House panel


Recommended Posts



Three moderate House Democrats announced that they would vote against their party's legislation to lower drug prices in committee on Tuesday, threatening a defeat for one of Democrats' signature measures. 

Reps. Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.), Scott Peters (D-Calif.) and Kathleen Rice (D-N.Y.) announced in separate statements on Tuesday that they would vote against the section of Democrats' $3.5 trillion package dealing with lowering drug prices during a markup in the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which is currently ongoing.  

The committee has not yet turned to the drug pricing section, but if all three lawmakers stick to their statements and vote no, it would be enough to defeat that section, given that all Republicans are also expected to vote no.  

All three lawmakers last week put forward scaled-back, rival drug pricing legislation that they said would "preserve innovation" and could gain bipartisan support. The pharmaceutical industry has attacked the drug pricing bill backed by Democratic leaders, known as H.R. 3, as threatening innovation from drug companies. 

"We need to be serious about how to address this issue by ensuring we champion legislation with broadly supported policies that have the bipartisan, bicameral backing needed to pass Congress," Schrader said in a statement. "I do not believe the drug pricing provision before the Energy and Commerce Committee today will meet this goal and succeed in the Senate, so I cannot vote in favor of the title."

The simple truth is that Americans aren’t being fairly represented by either political party.

Greed is good until you are killing the golden goose, which is what all of medicine is doing in the U.S.

The entire medical profession must be dealt with, not just the drug companies.

Add radioactive metals to the mix, D. Angel, for the arrogance of most men in southern medicine, is unmatched. Like dying stars, their tomb shall be the dark cold of empty space, where their scams turn to silent screams.

You have tried all our patience for too long.

And I thought Schrader was a true blue Oregon Democrat sheep... Good for him.
