CFIF to U.S. Senate: On Drug Prices, Say "NO" to Mandatory Inflation Rebate Proposals

On behalf of over 300,000 of our supporters and activists across the nation, CFIF has written the following letter opposing any use of Mandatory Inflation Rebate Proposals when it comes to the issue of addressing drug prices:

Monday, May 20 2019

ALEXANDRIA, VA - Today, Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai announced his intention to recommend that the agency green-light the proposed T-Mobile/Sprint merger.  Commissioner Brendan Carr similarly announced his support for the transaction.  In response, Jeffrey Mazzella, President of the Center for Individual Freedom (CFIF), issued the following statement: 

"Today's announcement constitutes a significant step forward for U.S. telecommunications policy, and CFIF applauds the wisdom and leadership demonstrated by Chairman Pai and Commissioner Carr.  We at CFIF have consistently emphasized that the transaction would immediately and enormously benefit the American economy and consumers via faster 5G transition, rural broadband acceleration, more jobs, greater private investment in telecommunications, increased market competition, broader nationwide coverage, capacity improvements, performance improvements and lower prices.  We accordingly urge the FCC and Department of Justice to complete their respective reviews and approve the merger without delay."
