Statement on President Obama’s FY 2017 Proposed Budget
Washington, D.C. – Today, President Obama released his proposed budget for fiscal year 2017. In response, John Rother, executive director of the Campaign for Sustainable Rx Pricing issued the following statement:
“Transparency and competition are the most effective ways to lower prescription drug prices. The broken pharmaceutical market operates with little competition and monopolies that companies use to set unsustainable prices. Today the president took an important step in his FY 2017 Budget to support transparency in the market and provide new information to consumers. CSRxP welcomes this step and encourages Congress and the Administration to take action to make prescription drugs affordable for all Americans.”
