STATEMENT: Khanna on Drug Pricing Bill

September 10, 2019
Press Release

Washington, DC – Today, Rep. Khanna issued the below statement in response to Speaker Pelosi's drug pricing bill circulation.

“I am pleased Speaker Pelosi’s plan takes on outrageously high drug prices through direct negotiation as opposed to private arbitration, as recommended by me and my colleagues in the Progressive Caucus,” said Rep. Khanna. “I am also proud that the Speaker has drawn from parts of my Prescription Drug Price Relief Act with Senator Sanders, ensuring that we don’t pay more for drugs than citizens in other countries. I hope the Speaker considers eliminating the reported 250-drug cap on negotiations. We should not bind our hands when it comes to lowering health care costs.”
