“Through a loophole in the tax code, drug companies are allowed to deduct the cost of advertising expenses from their federal taxes. This scheme yields an incredible windfall for the drug companies and it needs to end. That’s why today, I introduced legislation, the End Taxpayer Subsidies for Drug Ads Act, to close this egregious loophole in the tax code. It’s long past time that Congress and the Trump administration get serious about addressing prescription drug costs, and this legislation would be a big first step forward. I’ll continue to update you as I rally support for this legislation in Congress.”
I’m sure that’s the kind of thing Bernie would be happy to help through the whole process.
