Negotiating Medicare Drug Prices


Today I call on Pete Domenici to support the bill to allow Medicare to directly bargain with drug companies for lower drug prices.


Currently, Medicare is not allowed to bargain on prices.  The US House of Representatives passed a bill in January that would give Medicare this important tool.  Now it is up to the Senate.


Pete Domenici needs to choose between the drug companies and the 235,000 New Mexicans aged 65 and older who will benefit from this bill.  It should be an easy choice.
