Press Release
Congressman Earl Blumenauer (OR-03), senior member of the Ways and Means Committee, today issued the following statement:
“Today, the Ways and Means Committee passed a bill that sheds light on the causes of skyrocketing prescription drugs prices. Our current health care system has taken advantage of the American people with incessant price gouging for far too long. This bill is a small, but important, first step in addressing this crisis. I will continue working to accelerate the pace of progress to ensure every American has access to quality, affordable medicine.”
