this is why “it’s just two senators in the way of everything!” is an annoying talking point—it’s an institutionally conservative and corrupt *party* that is in the way!
Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) says he’s a NO on the House provision for Medicare to negotiate drug prices. He’s noncommittal on the idea overall. “Negotiations — many different ways that can take place. I'd like to finally see something that tells me what they want to do,” he says.

Replying to @fbnewsroom
Right now 30+ journalists are finishing up a coordinated series of articles based on thousands of pages of leaked documents. We hear that to get the docs, outlets had to agree to the conditions and a schedule laid down by the PR team that worked on earlier leaked docs.
