CU Letter to President Trump Supporting Taxpayer Protection Rights

Consumers Union, the policy arm of Consumer Reports, writes to express our support for the request made by Congressman Doggett and 50 other Members of Congress in a letter sent to you on April 4, to use existing law to protect taxpayers’ rights, frequently referred to as “march-in authority” to address the serious problem of high prescription drug prices. Unaffordable drug prices affect millions of consumers, leading to poor health outcomes and financial distress, and must be addressed by policymakers.
