WASHINGTON, D.C.— Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) released the following statement upon the Congressional Budget Office’s partial scoring of Speaker Pelosi’s partisan drug pricing bill, H.R. 3:

“The American people are sick of partisanship and want real solutions on prescription drug prices. Unfortunately, Speaker Pelosi has decided to ignore the Energy and Commerce Committee’s unanimously bipartisan prescription drug bills, and instead caved to radical liberals in her caucus who demand a socialist, government-dictated approach. Speaker Pelosi’s plan is a hyper-partisan bill that will do nothing but stifle American innovation and reduce access to life-saving medicine. We can do better. In 2016, both parties came together to deliver real results to the American people with the 21st Century Cures Act. I call on Speaker Pelosi to return to that bipartisan approach that will produce a viable bill ready for President Trump’s signature.”
