Do-nothing Dems?

Dear Editor,

Democrats in the House passed a bill that would let Medicare negotiate prices for seniors regarding prescription medicine, dental care, hearing aids and vision costs.

Every single Democrat voted in favor of the bill, while every Republican except two voted against it.

AARP supports the bill, but pharmaceutical companies don't. Why the difference in opinion? Could it be profits over lives?

Why would Republicans vote against a promise that Donald Trump made when he was a candidate in 2016 that he would "negotiate like crazy" to lower prescription drug prices for Medicare recipients?

But none of this matters, because the bill will die in the GOP-controlled Senate, just like hundreds of others passed by Democrats and not even brought to a vote by Mitch McConnell, the self proclaimed "grim reaper."

In their first half-year in the majority, Democrats have passed a total of 569 bills that were blocked in the Senate.

The Democratically controlled House isn’t paralyzed, the GOP Senate is, yet Trump rages at his rallies that it's the fault of the "do-nothing Democrats."

Sincerely,

Robert LaRosa

Whitestone
