RxRights and AEI logos

Drug industry groups claim that most people buy medications online to avoid the need for prescriptions or to access inappropriate medicines. I would argue that the main reason people import drugs is because they can't afford U.S. prices.

My opinion is largely based on anecdotal information, or personal stories from folks like you. In the political arena, an argument is more successful when it has data to back it up. That's why I am writing to ask you to take this survey about drug importation today.

There has been little actual research to explain who imports what prescription drugs and the reasons behind their purchases. By disseminating the survey, RxRights is assisting American Enterprise Institute economist Roger Bate, an expert in prescription drug safety, to shed some light on these questions.

Thank you in advance for your efforts. Our hope is that the data that Bate collects can help to inform policy and law and ultimately improve access to affordable medicine. In order for us to best assist with this project, we ask that you please fill out the survey as soon as possible.

Thanks for all you do,

Petition feedback

I recently asked you to sign a petition to help protect access to safe and affordable drugs. Many of you have contacted RxRights to complain that you had trouble signing due to various technical issues with the White House petition website.

We picked the White House site because it is the only petition option with the guarantee of a direct response from the White House with 25,000 signatures. We also wrongly assumed that a website with government support would be much easier to use than it has been.

We have a little over a week left to get 20,000+ more signatures. If you haven't been able to sign, would you please try again? If you are fed up, please contact the White House to give some critical feedback. They need to know that the "We the People" tool is NOT working for the people as intended.
