DETAILS:

FOR Republicans

Republicans are resistant to legislation that limits the marketplace like price cap provisions. They prefer more free market tactics like improving the accessibility of generic drugs.

FOR Democrats

Democrats focus how the high costs of essential medications place a strain on low- and middle-income families. They generally support federal legislation that would regulate and price cap various medicines based on their category. source
