Regardless, shorten the lifespan of drug patents and deschedulize marijuana and kratom.

Yes, but only enough to prevent major price gouging and the government should reduce the subsidies to the health care monopolies to allow for competition to emerge

Depends on what drugs. And their rareness and neccessity amount.

No, the government should lower the prices of life-saving drugs

@B3HK3LNAmerican Solidarity from Pennsylvania answered…3wks

No, but private companies that make drugs cost-prohibitive and engage in price-gouging practices should not receive any government funding.

@B3H69NGWomen’s Equalityfrom Northern Mariana Islands  answered…3wks

No, but support people who do not have enough money to buy it.

@9LN8L4BVeteran from Texas answered…2yrs

Government should subsidize instead regulate life saving drugs.

@9LJ7JJ6Veteran from New Jersey answered…2yrs

The government should incentivize creation of drugs and provide subsidies for those limiting patent lengths and providing affordable prescriptions.

@9LBB9GZVeteran from Alabama answered…2yrs

No but create sanctions to drug makers that overcharge for life saving drugs

@9L3HRJMWomen’s Equality from Tennessee answered…2yrs

Yes, if left to the discretion of private companies the risk of overcharging is too high

@9L3C9KKPeace and Freedom from Ohio answered…2yrs

Yes, and the government should make sure all life-saving drugs are affordable.

@9KXLRB4Women’s Equality from Illinois answered…2yrs

The people and the government should come to a reasonable price for life-saving drugs

@9KX457HLibertarian from Washington D.C. answered…2yrs

Yes, they need to do something to prevent the monopoly & price gouging on some life saving prescriptions

@Nathan's-Meme-Ch…Republican from California answered…2yrs

No, unless the prices undermine those who cannot purchase the needed pharmaceutical.

@9KPR2ZGIndependent from Utah answered…2yrs

Drug prices should be set by a fair market. The drug patents are a problem

@Matthew-JohnsonVeteran from Colorado answered…2yrs

No, instead we should allow drug purchases from outside cheaper countries, creating competition to drive overall prices down.

@Anthony-CottoTranshumanist from Oklahoma answered…2yrs

Yes, If government grant money was used in the development of the medicine.

Yes, with a caveat that companies must be allowed to recoup the costs spent on research and the cost cannot price someone out of live saving medication.

@9JYNKXFTranshumanist from South Carolina answered…2yrs

Yes but only drugs that are the sole solution to a medical problem

@9JXC4KWRepublican from Georgia answered…2yrs

Yes, but within a fair market. The government should have little involvement in privet business.

@9JVF2L7Libertarian from Texas answered…2yrs

No, But Abolish IP laws that allow for the high prices of drugs, which cause the high prices to begin with.

@9JCY7F8Women’s Equality from Missouri answered…2yrs

@9J7W3QNDemocrat from Virginia answered…2yrs

No, but shorten the lifespan of the patents to a break even point plus 10% of original investment. That will keep R&D going but allow for eventual generic options in the future.

@slynch91Libertarianfrom District of Columbia  answered…2yrs

Yes, in terms of setting a tax on surplus revenue from life-saving drugs, limiting the non-competitive drug patients, and only setting price ceilings when a drug company is bought out or merged with another corporate entity.

@9HYQVPNTranshumanist from Pennsylvania answered…2yrs

This is a double edged sword. Have other countries pay their fair share so we can price control ours and not have to single-handedly pay for the worlds research and development and the continued existence of pharmaceutical companies.

@9HYLPL5Veteran from Idaho answered…2yrs

@9HWDPJDAmerican Solidarity from California answered…2yrs

Yes but don’t overcharge the people the Government should step in to help if the citizen can’t afford the drug on their own they can split the difference or work out a deal with the company to adjust the price

@9HS9ZN4Peace and Freedom from California answered…2yrs

Yes, limit drug prices but also increase federal and state funded incentives for research and development of safer and more effective drugs for all forms of Illness. Also decriminalize all drug use, increase funding for rehabilitation and mental health treatment, as well as safe use sites, then dismantle the DEA and force the FDA to re-evaluate the drug schedules based on modern research and allow for more research and development in psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy.

@9HS7G3DVeteran from North Carolina answered…2yrs

No, deregulate the medication industry to create competition and lower prices that way.

@9HRVGY7Peace and Freedom from Maryland answered…2yrs

@9HRTGQ4Republican from Nevada answered…2yrs

It depends completely on the drug. Generally life saving medicine is very expensive, and the money that goes into that medicine is used to improve the product as well as being the cost down.

@9HRGMDVWomen’s Equality from Florida answered…2yrs

A drug should have a cap of X percent over the cost to make the drug.

@9HQ5SPLWorking Family from Iowa answered…2yrs

Yes, they should monitor and prevent increasing price for drug company financial gain rather than health of people to keep drugs affordable and accessible

@9HPGCS5Working Family from Nebraska answered…2yrs

If it lowers the prices yes but they shouldn’t raise higher.

@9HP796KVeteran from West Virginia answered…2yrs

I hate to say yes because we don't need to have the government control everything, but greed is driving up the costs of medication. We should want to help people and still make money without causing people to have to choose between medication and buying food or paying a bill.

@9HLQXSSIndependent from New York answered…2yrs

It depends on the definition of life saving as per each drug. Something like an EpiPen makes sense but others are debatable

@9HLCLD7Peace and Freedom from Texas answered…2yrs

Yes but it should be regulated with input for health professionals and a bipartisan committee.

@9HL6F8FPeace and Freedom from Arizona answered…2yrs

Yes to a stance because you want funding for new drugs but not rip people off

@9HL2KLHConstitution from Georgia answered…2yrs

Only when companies are gouging making it impossible for the average American
