Btw, whose side are they are on?
Still stinging from their inability to stop Democrats from passing legislation designed to aid veterans fighting diseases linked to toxic burn pit exposure, Republicans had a hard fought close win today. Now they can brag to their constituents that they kept the cost of insulin high.
Republicans block cap on insulin costs for many Americans from Democratic deal
(CNBC)Republican senators on Sunday voted down a cap on the price of insulin in the private market, removing it from Democratsí sweeping climate and economic package.
Democrats had tried to preserve the provision to cap insulin costs at $35 for private insurers, but that vote failed 57-43, with seven Republicans voting with them to keep the insulin cost cap in the bill, three short of what was needed.
The move was expected following a decision by the Senate parliamentarian, who determined earlier that the insulin provision was not compliant with the chamberís strict budget rules. Democrats need to comply with those rules to advance the legislation, called the Inflation Reduction Act, without any Republican votes.
