An Open Letter

To: Pres. Biden, Sen. Cantwell, Sen. Murray, Rep. Gluesenkamp Perez

From: A verified voter in Vancouver, WA

June 10

I am your constituent and I just learned that New York State is the latest to begin the process of importing prescription drugs from Canada. Canada has universal healthcare and so is able to negotiate fair prices for drugs. Here we have Pharmacy Benefit Managers who cheat pharmacists. They also force drug companies to jack up prices to cover the cost of a bribe to place their drug on an insurance formulary. The copays and deductibles consumers pay are often out of line to make sure that all the palms are greased along the way. Look, if we had a national health insurance trust, we could negotiate fair prices for all drugs, not just the 10 we have now for seniors. How about stepping up to the plate and protecting your constituents from a system designed to cheat them? I want you to actively support a national single payer universal health care plan, like HR 3421, and start protecting all of us. After all, as President Lincoln said, "The legitimate object of government, is to do for a community of people, whatever they need to have done, but can not do, at all, or can not, so well do, for themselves- in their separate, and individual capacities". Do that and implement a national universal healthcare trust.
