Senator-elect Sherrod Brown: First we go after Big Pharma

Categories: Big Pharma, FDA

From a Mother Jones interview with Ohio senator-elect Sherrod Brown:

MJ: What do you want to do on the Health and Education Committee?

SB: FDA reform wrestling the agency away from drug company influence. In my 14 years in the House, I’ve seen a very good agency, the Food and Drug administration one of the best public agencies in the world, frankly turn into a shadow of itself because of drug company influence. I think the best way to fill the donut hole [the coverage gap in the Medicare drug benefit] is to negotiate drug prices. When you negotiate drug prices on behalf of 40 plus million beneficiaries, the donut hole begins to shrink.
