Matt Brown on Health Care
So Matt started a website called RIRx and launched RIMeds - a program allowing Rhode Islanders to purchase safe, affordable prescription drugs from Canada where they cost up to 60% less. The Bush administration threatened to send in the FDA to stop him - but Matt didn't back down. To date, people have visited the website over 400,000 times. Now Matt is traveling all over Rhode Island to show seniors how to use the RIMeds program so they can afford the prescription drugs they need to stay healthy.
You can imagine that the big insurance companies and their lobbyists fought this with everything they had. But Matt didn't back down - and he won. Today, Rhode Island's Health Insurance Commissioner oversees the insurance companies and works to keep health care costs down for Rhode Islanders.
