Fwd: Tell Congress to get moving on prescription drug s

In the past year, millions of Americans were exposed to unsafe medicines such as Vioxx and Bextra because the nation's drug safety laws are weak and fail to hold drug companies responsible for safety.

But Congress has gotten tens of thousands of emails and now there are two new bills, S. 930 and S. 470/H. 3196 that--if passed--can restore our faith in our drug safety system and put the interests of people like us before those of the pharmaceutical industry. Congress needs to get moving on these bills right after the holidays!

Please visit Consumers Union's campaign site at to learn more and take action.

I just sent a quick email in support of these bills, and I hope you will too. After you take action, there's even a funny video on prescription drug TV ads produced by Consumers Union to promote this cause.
