US DEMOCRATS vote against affordable medication

Why the DNC is a corporate shill ... In January 2017 12 Republican senators supported a bill to allow Americans to import affordable medicine from Canada. The bill failed to pass, however, because so many DEMOCRATS voted against the bill. Here's the list ... These people are truly deplorable.

Rand Paul, Ted Cruz  supported the bill put forward by Bernie Sanders.

The policy has widespread support among Americans: one Kaiser poll taken in 2015 found that 72 percent of Americans are in favor of allowing for importation. President-elect Donald Trump also campaigned on a promise to allow for importation.

Democrats blocked importation from becoming part of the Affordable Care Act in 2009, with over 30 votes in opposition, because they feared it would have pushed the pharmaceutical industry to oppose the underlying legislation. They also voted in large numbers to oppose importation as part of an FDA bill in 2012.

Let's give a special shout out to Cory Booker ... Cory Anthony Booker is an American politician and the junior United States Senator from New Jersey, in office since 2013. Previously he served as mayor of Newark from 2006 to 2013. Wikipedia
