"Vowing to bring an end to “greed” in the pharmaceutical industry, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Democratic House leaders said they plan to introduce three new bills Thursday aimed at slashing high prescription drug prices in the U.S.
Democrats, who regained control of the House this month, listed lowering prescription drug costs as one of their top priorities. The bills, led by Sanders and Reps. Elijah Cummings of Maryland and Ro Khanna of California, would permit Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar to negotiate lower prices for drugs under Medicare Part D, the federal program for prescription drug benefits."
