Two bills designed to lower drug costs for patients are being ignored by U.S. Senate leaders, so says Republican Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri. One bill would cap prescription drug prices in the U.S. while the other would limit insulin costs to $25 a month per patient.

“The American people, and the people of Missouri in particular, deserve to have relief from these outrageous prices,” Hawley said. “These Big Pharma companies, they don’t need to charge us in Missouri three and four times for the same drugs what they’re charging people in Canada, or France, or England, or wherever. They can afford to bring down the price of these drugs. It’s price gouging, is what it is, and it needs to stop.”

Hawley told Missourinet he’ll go down to the floor of the U.S. Senate and force a vote if necessary.
