While Democrats hold significantly more trust from constituents on health care matters, the party is struggling to form a cohesive one against high drug prices, STAT reports.
“The Democrats do not have a concise drug plan,” Harvard political scientist Robert Blendon tells STAT. “Most big plans that help candidates usually come in presidential years where somebody can articulate it. The Democrats would have to agree on a plan, and they would have to have most candidates running on one — that doesn’t exist.”
According to the report, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has stayed mum on drug prices since June on a campaign blog updated an a near-daily basis. The posts reportedly stick to health insurance markets and out-of-pocket costs.
