Pelosi's plan could prevent 100 lifesaving medicines from being created.
Ask your Members of Congress to vote NO on H.R. 3, the disingenuously named Lower Drug Costs Now Act.
As an American Taxpayer and one of your constituents, I'm writing to ask that you vote NO on H.R. 3, the disingenuously named Lower Drug Costs Now Act. If Congress passes this reckless bill, it could impose a 95 percent tax on hundreds of life-saving and life-preserving drugs including cures for cancer, hepatitis C, epilepsy, and multiple sclerosis.
While Speaker Nancy Pelosi claims that her bill will save taxpayers money, a new report projects that the resulting worse health outcomes due to lack of access to cures will cost $1 trillion a year for the next ten years.
Based on research by Americans for Affordable Prescription Drugs, the 95 percent tax could hit treatments for the following illnesses and diseases:
Simply put, if H.R. 3 were to become law it would dramatically change the American healthcare system in a way that will harm patients, innovators and providers.
I urge you to vote NO on H.R. 3 this week and protect the American people from the tax increases and price controls that would ensue.
