Sanders Statement on FDA Bill

WASHINGTON, May 24 - Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following statement today after the Senate voted on a Food and Drug Administration bill:

"The most pressing prescription drug issue in our country today is that Americans pay, by far, the highest prices in the world for their medicine and millions of people cannot afford the medications their doctors prescribe.  I voted against this bill because it does far too little to address this crisis while it perpetuates a prescription drug system that continues to fail the American people."
