Health care

Kudos to Rep’s work

My wife and I are seniors on fixed income. We appreciate the fact that U.S. Rep. Kim Schrier (WA 8) is supporting HR 3 , the Lower Drug Costs Now Act. This bill would allow more access to 250 of the most common medicinal drugs by requiring Medicare Part D to negotiate lower prices with drug corporations. It would also insure quicker coverage approval and availability of these drugs. We thank Rep. Schrier and hope that HR 3 will soon be enacted.
