VIDEO: Chairman Price on Innovation in Health Care
WASHINGTON, D.C. – We all want an innovative health care system. Sadly, right now we have a system that is punishing the innovators – driving up their costs through taxation and regulation. As a result, it is that much harder for patients to have access to new drugs or treatments that would increase the quality of care in this country. To break down barriers, we need to choose a better way with policies that support the innovative spirit in this country.
As House Budget Committee Chairman Tom Price, M.D. (GA-06) explains in today’s video release:
“We need to tell the FDA and other governmental entities, we want you to incentivize; we want you to work alongside companies in our country to make it so that they’re able to create that better drug or that better service or that better product…We need to free up the companies in this country so that they’re not beholden to, they’re not limited by the bureaucracy that we have in Washington, D.C.”
