New Lung Cancer Breakthrough Illustrates the Potential Peril of Drug Price Controls

We at CFIF often highlight the clear and present danger that drug price control schemes pose to American consumers, who benefit from our private pharmaceutical sector that leads the world - by far - in innovation.  A new lung cancer treatment breakthrough in the form of Amgen's Lumakras illustrates that interrelationship.

Simply put, Lumakras reduced the risk of progression by 34% compared to chemotherapy in patents with advanced lung cancer, which is particularly welcome considering lung cancer's especially low survival rate (18.6% over five years, and just 5% for advanced forms).  The breakthrough required years of research and enormous amounts of investment, however, which The Wall Street Journal notes makes Lumakras the type of innovation put at risk by new drug price controls…[more]

CFIF's Imperfect Union Initiative Launches Radio Ad Exposing UFCW Local 7’s Authoritarian Crackdown on Its Own Hard-Working Members Print E-mail
Monday, May 02 2022

Fairfax, VA -- The Center for Individual Freedom (“CFIF”) today announced the launch of a radio ad campaign across the Denver, Colarado metro area exposing the truth about United Food and Commercial Workers (“UFCW”) Local 7 president Kim Cordova’s authoritarian crackdown on her own members.

Undertaken by CFIF’s Imperfect Union initiative, the ad aims to bring awareness to Cordova’s intimidation campaign of fines and payroll deductions against her members who continued to work during January’s King Soopers strike.

Last week, Imperfect Union highlighted Cordova’s authoritarian crackdown on Local 7 members, a retaliatory targeting of members who chose to work and support their families. Specifically, Cordova and her UFCW cronies began issuing hefty fines and attempting to confiscate earned wages from hardworking members.

Imperfect Union’s radio ad discusses the massive fines Cordova is imposing upon her members, along with her demands for them to give UFCW Local 7 all of the wages they earned during the strike.  Cordova issued those vindictive fines while she continued to earn a generous $200k+ annual salary and UFCW Local 7 had over $14 million in the bank.

Coloradoans deserve to know how Cordova’s vindictive behavior is hurting her own union members, making it harder for them to put food on their tables and provide for their families.
