Rep. Norcross: High cost of prescription drugs is ‘unacceptable’

Norcross, who hosted an earlier roundtable on the issue of drug prices in April, has stressed there is no single “silver bullet” solution. Rather he believes the problem can only be addressed with multiple actions, such as giving the government the ability to negotiate down the price of prescription drugs, increasing transparency surrounding the pricing and rebates offered to pharmacy benefit managers, and making it easier for brand drugs to be reproduced as generics.

“Russia has better pricing than we do in the United States. That’s a problem. But it’s a problem that can be fixed,” Norcross said.

Congressman: South Jersey base will take new F-35 fighters

If Vermont doesn’t want the Air Force’s newest fighter jets, New Jersey will be glad to find a home for them in South Jersey.

Congressman Donald Nocross, D-1 of Camden, made that clear in a letter to the Air Force’s acting secretary last week that renewed the state’s push for the service to send some of the new F-35 fighters to the New Jersey Air National Guard’s 177th Fighter Wing at Atlantic City International Airport in Egg Harbor Township.

Norcross to Convene Roundtable with South Jersey Type 1 Diabetics on the High Prices of Prescription Drugs, Including Insulin

“Throughout the year, I’ve been hearing from New Jersey patients, pharmacists and doctors about how the high prices are forcing people to make unthinkable choices. In these conversations, unaffordable insulin is often mentioned. That’s why I want to hear from the families directly impacted in our community and discuss how we can stand up to big pharma together,” said Congressman Donald Norcross. “Families are crying out for relief – we must rein in high prescription drug costs.”

To protect U.S. jobs, NAFTA 2.0 must become NAFTA 3.0 | by Donald Norcross

Any trade deal must first and foremost benefit American workers. Yet, unfortunately, since 1993, our country’s workforce has suffered because of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Some sources say almost 1 million American jobs were lost since NAFTA went into effect, although estimates of net job impacts vary greatly. Every week, more jobs are being outsourced to Mexico. In South Jersey alone we’re down 20,000 manufacturing jobs, which is simply unacceptable.
