prices must be curbed
Ordinary Virginians would reap substantial benefits from the Lower Drug Costs Now Act, House Resolution 3, introduced by the late U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md.

My teenage son must carry an epinephrine injector with him at all times to protect him from anaphylaxis. The cost for the injector has increased more than tenfold during his short lifetime. I urge my fellow citizens to let your representatives in Congress know how protecting us from out-of-control drug prices would help you.
