Hillary Clinton’s Drug Plan is a Win for Seniors
Government Would Act Against Unfair and Monopolistic Business Practices
Richard Fiesta, Executive Director of the Alliance for Retired Americans, released the following statement regarding the release of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s new prescription drug plan:
“Hillary Clinton’s new plan to combat unfair, unjustified prescription drug price hikes is a win for seniors and consumers.
“When a pharmaceutical corporation decides to pad its profit by exponentially raising prices on medicines that have been on the market for years, retirees are the first victims and the hardest hit. These corporations know that seniors need these drugs to stay alive, and don’t care if people are forgoing food or other necessities to pay for them.
“It’s time to level the playing field. By directing the government to take swift action against unfair and monopolistic business practices, the Clinton plan helps both seniors and taxpayers. We strongly support this proposal.”
