Rising Costs Of Prescription Drugs


Congressman Anthony Brindisi held a round table discussion for locals to raise their concerns regarding the prices of prescription medication. Locals raised concerns regarding insulin and other drugs that could act as life saving devices for those facing disease. 

Congressman Brindisi wants to see competition in the marketplace, which should encourage larger pharmaceutical companies to force prices down to make up for the generic pricing of medication.

Earlier in May, the House of representatives passed bipartisan legislation to bring down costs and improve access to those generic prescription drugs.
