Letter: Bolingbrook reader supports new Medicare act

To the Editor:

I urge your publication to publish an editorial in support of Congress passing the Medicare Prescription Drug Price Negotiation Act of 2013.

The bills in the Senate (S.117) and in the House (H.R.1102) would direct the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to negotiate with pharmaceutical manufacturers the prices that may be charged to Medicare Part D prescription drug plan sponsors and Medicare Advantage organizations for covered Part D drugs.

Your readers should understand that putting the federal government's purchasing power to work to save money is simply common sense and it would save Medicare up to $156 billion over 10 years while reducing health care costs for seniors.

Antoinette DePisa, Bolingbrook
