Opinion: Arizona voters overwhelmingly support a plan to lower prescription drug prices by allowing Medicare to negotiate a better deal. Sadly, it appears Sen. Kyrsten SInema isn’t one of them.

Would U.S. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) really block a provision allowing Medicare to negotiate lower drug prices?
Here’s something you don’t see too often. Or ever.
Arizona Republicans and Democrats both support a proposal that would allow Medicare to negotiate the price of prescription drugs.
In all, a startling 94% of Arizona voters favor the idea, according to a new poll conducted by OH Predictive Insights. That includes 92% of Republicans and independents and 97% of Democrats.
In a place where Republicans and Democrats can’t agree that the sky is blue, this is the bizarre stuff.
“There’s not much the parties agree on,” pollster Mike Noble told me. “This one had overwhelming majorities across party lines.”
