U.S. Senate candidate Sarah Godlewski turns focus to cutting drug costs

Via The Cap Times:

Wisconsin Treasurer and Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Sarah Godlweski on Monday released her second policy paper of the campaign, this time with a focus on lowering prescription drug costs and pushing transparency among pharmaceutical companies.

The proposal from Godlewski comes just weeks after her first package of ideas, which was geared at addressing issues affecting rural Wisconsinites by bolstering telehealth access and creating tax carveouts for farm families.

In Monday’s proposal, Godlewski said she would support legislation that would allow the Health and Human Services secretary to negotiate prescription drug prices on behalf of Medicare. Medicare is federal health insurance for people 65 and older. As of October 2021, there were more than 63 million Americans enrolled in Medicare, according to federal data.
