on Friday, Senator Rick Scott mader an announcement about the Transparent Drug Pricing Act.

The Transparent Drug Pricing Act, promotes transparency in drug pricing and reduces the cost of prescription drugs for American consumers.

Senator Rick Scott said, “American consumers are facing a crisis of rising drugs costs and we can’t wait any longer. I urge every Senator to put themselves in the shoes of a family or a senior living on a fixed income who’s seen their drug costs triple in just a few years. This is about the lives of real people that hang in the balance. Every American should know exactly what their prescriptions cost and it’s unfair that consumers in other countries get a better deal than patients in America. That must change. There is no justification for waiting, we need to address the soaring costs of prescription drugs right now. Drug prices are a serious problem – a problem Washington should have addressed long ago.”

Senator Scott is one of just three republicans tapped by President Trump to develop a new healthcare plan.
