After speaking at length about his criticism of further aid to Ukraine, Vance said, “Now, I want to move on to another argument. But before I do, I am...

Listening to what the drugmaker executives have to say about medicine prices would ordinarily be a valuable exercise. But under the proverbial interrogation lamp of HELP Committee Chairman Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), the proceedings will be more akin to the Salem witch trials. 

The committee hearing is set to focus on price disc...

Florida advocates launch effort to put Medicaid expansion on 2026 ballot
