Should we be surprised? Our guy in Washington, Congressman Glenn Grothman, joined 191 other Republicans and one independent, to vote against letting Medicare negotiate lower drug prices for seniors. So far, no explanation for his vote has been given, but this too is an example of toeing the Republican Party line and not listening to his constituents. Numerous surveys from various organizations have suggested that 93 percent of Americans want the government to negotiate for reduced drug costs, already among the highest for any developed nation in the world.
So, what are the chances the Republican-controlled Senate will go along with the House bill? Like most measures passed by the House, which is controlled by the Democratic Party, slim to none. Thanks Glenn.
