Well, I am a Republican who does favor making prescription drugs cheaper! Far too many people, namely minorities, have a hard time affording drugs. Now, how much cheaper is a valid question! For example A $1000 prescription for some condition could get lowered by to sell for $100/bottle is perhaps too severe of a reduction! It going for $300-$500/a pop might be a bit better.

The bill also contains several provisions to roll back attempts of the Trump administration to push junk health insurance plans to the general public. These plans, which Trump and Republicans champion, do not contain the protections for people with preexisting conditions enshrined in the ACA, such as ensuring costs are not higher and that people with preexisting conditions cannot be denied health insurance.
Wow...those evil provisions...

You find an attempt to lower Rx drug costs so that folks who need them will have access to them something to laugh about? Really?

Nah, just found it humorous that you post a dead link and tell us to read it.

As for your initial source, you're not even a step better than just linking to some post here in this forum.

ACA was signed March 2010, if they don't know by now, all the money in the world wouldn't help!

Now we have a bill with a ton of pork that the (D)'s know is going nowhere.

Yes, the Republicans are pos where health Care is concerned. No way to defend them there. The (D)'s did nothing here though but pass a bill to push politics.
Who is “ we” as in “ We had a bill that would have allowed people to purchase lower cost prescriptions out of Canada” ?

I am aware that several states, red and blue, have or are contemplating bills allowing residents to buy prescription meds from Canada, subject to Federal approval. I am not aware there was a recent Federal bill. Did I miss something? Could you provide a link, please.
