The U.S. is the best in the world when it comes to developing innovative, lifesaving and life-preserving medicines, including the development of COVID-19 vaccines already helping contain the pandemic and save lives.
But the pandemic also exposed a tragic reality: our health care system is undermined by too much bureaucracy and red tape that prevents access to care, limits innovation, and actually adds unnecessary government-imposed costs into the system.
Why would we go backward and ADD regulations that will make it harder to develop new life-saving medications?
Instead, Minnesota should cut even more red tape. This would increase competition in the prescription drug market, expand access to medicines while bringing down prices, and encourage the creation of new life-saving treatments.
