U.S. Senator Gary Peters of Michigan spoke on the Senate floor Thursday to share the stories of Michiganders he met with recently at roundtables across the state who are currently struggling to afford the prescription drugs they need. Peters also discussed the need for the Senate to take action and his investigation through the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee into the skyrocketing cost of prescription drugs, growing drug shortages and the risks to national security and public health. "Too many Michiganders are struggling with rising prescription drug costs and the consequences can be life-threatening," said Senator Peters, Ranking Member of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. "Families in Michigan and across the country are counting on us. Families should never be forced to choose between paying their bills or getting the medication they need, but sadly, that is a choice too many families face."
