U.S. Senator Ron Johnson would like to attack the high cost of prescription drugs on two fronts.  With prescription drugs now accounting for about 40 percent of all the health spending among high-cost patients, according to a Kaiser Family Foundation study, Sen. Johnson would like to see the senate address two issues he believes both political parties can get behind.  In an interview last week with, Johnson shared what can hopefully be accomplished in the U.S. Senate after the August recess.



Sen. Johnson says he does not currently work on the health committee but wants to help craft legislation through them that will be effective at restraining the growth in drug prices.
