Vitter’s Demands Hold Up Compounding-Pharmacy Bill - Bloomberg

Vitter’s Demands Hold Up Compounding-Pharmacy Bill - Bloomberg:

"One lawmaker’s effort to alter Obamacare is holding up final action by Congress on legislation that would expand U.S. regulation of compounding pharmacies linked to meningitis deaths last year.

The Senate is poised to approve the measure to broaden the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s oversight of compounding pharmacies. Ninety-nine senators have agreed to pass the legislation that the House passed without a roll call vote, Democratic and Republican lawmakers said.

Republican Senator David Vitter of Louisiana wants the vote on compounding pharmacies coupled with consideration of his proposal to deny lawmakers and their staffs employer contributions when they buy medical insurance on the exchanges set up under the new health-care law. As a result, senators may have to spend a week on work that could be done in minutes."
