The 21st Century Cures initiative has demonstrated that bipartisan members of Congress are able to put aside differences and work together toward a common goal: helping patients. Health Subcommittee Ranking Member Gene Green (D-TX) and Rep. Pete Olson (R-TX) write in the Houston Chronicle, “We have an obligation to patients and families across America who are in need of hope and of cures.”
Longtime pundit John Feehery is the latest prominent voice to join #Cures2015. The landmark initiative continues to gain steam following the Energy and Commerce Committee’s unanimous 51-0 vote in support of H.R. 6, the 21st Century Cures Act.
