Source: If you’re a senior paying exorbitant prices for prescription drugs, the news out of Washington is not very good. That’s because legislation that would help lower those drug prices appears to be stuck, apparently the victim of intense lobbying by the pharmaceutical industry, which reportedly has lured a number of Democratic legislators into its camp. And there is very little, if any Republican support. So, the forecast for this proposal, a priority of President Biden, is mostly cloudy at best. Today, we’re with Chris Orestis, president of Retirement Genius, an expert on financial health, long term care, and retirement issues. Considered a political insider and senior issues advocate, Chris is a former Washington, D.C. lobbyist who has worked at the White House and for the Senate Majority Leader on Capitol Hill. He’s author of two books, “Help on the Way” and “A Survival Guide to Aging” and has a third book, “Retire Like a Genius” on the way. He’s been speaking for two-decades across the country about senior finance and the secrets to aging with financial and physical health and dignity. Chris lays out for us how a small group of lawmakers are doing the bidding of Big Pharma and blocking legislation that would provide prescription drug price relief, and steps seniors can take to help reduce their own Rx expenditures. Take a listen.
