House GOP eyes repeal of Dems’ drug pricing law

Some key House Republicans are calling for the repeal of Democrats’ newly-passed drug pricing measure if the GOP flips control of one or both chambers of Congress next year.

The comments show Republicans are not giving up the fight against sweeping measures aimed at lowering prescription drug prices, and give a glimpse of what their health agenda could look like. “If the courts haven’t gotten to it beforehand, yeah we’ve got to do our job and try to defend the Constitution,” Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-Va.) told Axios, saying the law is an “unlawful taking.”
