Joel White published an op-ed in RealClear Health outlining the damaging impact the Senate Democrats’ drug pricing legislation in the “Inflation Reduction Act” would have on Medicare Part D.
“The goal of their ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ is as straightforward as it is cynical: Transfer billions from Medicare Part D to bankroll green energy projects and subsidize premiums for wealthy Obamacare enrollees. It must be stopped.
In their desperate pursuit of a ‘win’ before the mid-term elections, Senators Joe Manchin and Chuck Schumer are endangering one of America’s most popular, affordable health programs – the Medicare Part D drug benefit for seniors. Worse, they are inserting government bureaucrats and politicians into every medicine cabinet in America. As we struggle to hold down drug inflation, the last thing we should do is set up a bonanza for lobbyists and politicians.”
