The Democrats in Washington are bent on stomping on the U.S. Constitution at every chance they get. They want government control over your lives at every turn, despite the fact that the Constitution gives the federal government no such allowances. The latest one is H.R. 3, the so-called “Lower Drug Costs Now Act.” H.R. 3 would institute not one, but two different government price-control schemes that are not only unconstitutional, but have socialism written all over them.
The consequences will be severe. Innovation will be slapped in the face, reducing any incentive regarding research and development, therefore killing much of our access to new life-saving medications. Wait times for treatments will lengthen as the quality goes down. And, in the long run, more government influence will, in the long run, increase prices, not decrease them, and then when government tries to put more price controls forcing pricing to fit their demands, we will see companies struggle, and ultimately close their doors forever.
Contact your House member about these things that concern you. Ask them to oppose H.R. 3, as well as any other proposal that may include government price setting schemes and government interference in our free market economy. Stand firm in support of capitalism. Don’t let them steal our freedom, and our prosperity.
