80% of the active ingredients used to make drugs in the US are said to come from China and other countries and 97% of antibiotics used in the US are made in China. Sens. Cotton, Blackburn and Cruz have introduced legislation directing the Secretary of HHS to:
- Require the FDA to create a registry of all drugs and corresponding ingredients that are produced outside the US and are determined to be critical to the health and safety of Americans
- Require HHS, Veterans Affairs, the Department of Defense, and all other federally qualified health facilities to buy pharmaceutical products that have NO ingredients produced in China
Which best describes how you feel about this legislation?
