Prescription Drugs

Increasingly, America's working families and retirees face the choice of buying food or buying life saving medicines.  Pharmaceutical companies have increased prices by an average of over fifteen percent per year for the last few years.  Companies profits totaled $30.6 billion in 2001 and their return on revenue was more than five times better than the average of Fortune 500 companies.  Meanwhile, people are forced to leave prescriptions unfilled because they cannot afford the cost.
