“Sen. Sanders has a plan to lower drug prices” – Social Security Works.org

JAN._2017_CHART_US-CANADA_Pricing_Differences

An email from SocialSecurityWorks.org, states:

“Prescription drug companies are getting away with murder. The company who makes Xtandi, a prostate cancer medication developed with US tax dollars, costs $129,000 per year to Americans, yet only $30,000 to Canadians. This isn’t an isolated case. Americans pay the highest price in the world for prescription drugs―over 40% more than Canada and often three times that of many European countries.

“Sen. Bernie Sanders has introduced a bill that would stop this madness by allowing individuals and pharmacies to import safe, FDA-approved drugs directly from Canada.”

Social Security Works exhorts you to “Tell Congress: Pass Bernie’s Bill to Lower Drug Prices.”
