Today, Kaiser Health release new data showing more than half of the public – 52% – believe that passing legislation to bring down #RxPrices should be a top priority for President Trump and Congress, yet less than half the public – 39% – say they are confident that they will be able to deliver on the promise to lower prescription drug prices.
