Sign the petition: Hogan should stand up to big pharma

Prescription drug prices are out of control. Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress aren’t going to do anything about it, so states must act. 

That’s why the Maryland General Assembly cracked down on price gouging by becoming the first state to give its attorney general power to hold drug corporations accountable when they dramatically increase the price of off-patent or generic drugs. 

The bill passed with broad bi-partisan support. Only two Delegates and eight Senators – all Republicans – voted against its final passage. 

Despite a major problem and an overwhelmingly bi-partisan solution, Governor Larry Hogan refused to sign the bill. 

This week, the pharmaceutical industry filed a lawsuit challenging the law. According to The Washington Post, public heath advocate Vincent DeMarco said Governor Hogan’s arguments “gave ammunition to the drug companies.”  

Marylanders deserve a governor who will stand up to big pharma. Add your name to the growing list of Marylanders who are fed up with Larry Hogan fighting for the drug companies instead of our families.

    Marylanders deserve a governor who will stand up to big pharmaceutical companies, not some mealy mouth, do everything while the cameras are “rolling,” however, seems this governor is only a ‘puppet’ for the clown in the White House.
