Please! Pharma needs to weigh in now on new healthcare

Here’s what will happen if the American Health Care Act becomes law.  Tens of millions of Americans will lose health coverage and tens of thousands of people will die every year who otherwise would have lived.  It’s time for the voices that have been silent to yell and stop this insanity before it’s too late.

According to Ian Millhiser Justice Editor, ThinkProgress “an odd thing often happens in the national media as a vote on major legislation begins to draw nigh. The press coverage of the bill — even a bill that threatens to strip health care from tens of millions of people — gets much narrower”.

To make matters worse and in a case of extreme chutzpah House Republicans appear to have included a provision that exempts members of Congress and their staff from their latest health care plan.

So let me speak in terms even Trump supporters can understand “this has to stop and our industry cannot remain silent while pretending to be patient focused.
