What if you can't "use only as directed"

Today, as I am pulling materials together for our petition to lower the costs of prescription drugs, I'm thinking about my parents — particularly my mom.

Both of my parents devoted their careers to medical research and teaching. My mom, Dr. Anne Gershon, was the lead researcher in the development of the chickenpox vaccine.

Her innovation was able to improve the health and quality of life for millions of people worldwide, but only because those folks were able to access this care.

Right now, nearly one in four Americans taking prescription drugs say it is hard to afford their medicine.

Roughly three in ten adults report that they do not take their prescriptions as directed because of the cost.

Meanwhile, prescription drug prices are skyrocketing, often arbitrarily, and Big Pharma is raking in record profits.

Families shouldn't have to choose between their medications and other essentials. Sign the petition and tell Congress: pass legislation to lower the cost of prescription drugs.

Congress is debating legislation that lowers prescription drug prices by allowing generic versions of prescription drugs to get onto the market sooner. This plan would allow families to get crucial medication while also reducing the federal deficit by almost $4 billion over 10 years.

I support this plan and hope you will too: sign the petition and tell Congress: pass legislation to lower the cost of prescription drugs.

For 25 years, I have been a common-sense businessman — not a career politician — so I look at things differently. I know about fixing dysfunction. It starts with hard work, a commitment to results, and perseverance — not scoring cheap political points. We can work together to provide opportunity and create an economy that works for all of us.
