WASHINGTON, D.C. – During a House Subcommittee on Health hearing today, Congressman John Sarbanes (D-Md.) called on Big Pharma executives to find ways to reduce prescription drug prices.

“I hope, as many Members have emphasized today, that the message is getting through on a bipartisan basis that we’re getting to the end of our tether,” said Congressman Sarbanes. “And a lot of it has to do with trying to catch smoke with how this pricing works…. If the drug supply chain can’t be improved, then we may start out in a place that you all don’t like.”
