Stop The 21st Century Cures Act

For more than 40 years, Public Citizen has fought to keep dangerous drugs and medical devices off the market. Each year, millions of patients are injured by medical products and billions of dollars are wasted on harmful or inappropriate treatments.

On Wednesday, November 30, 2016, the House passed the 21st Century Cures Act. The Senate should not rush to pass this nearly 1,000 page bill before there is time to thoroughly review it and understand the public health consequences. There are many provisions in this mega-bill that would be problematic for public health.

Why Should you Oppose the 21st Century Cures Bill?
