When the user-fee bill comes up for a vote I urge you to make sure it gives the FDA the authority to require medical device makers to "fix the flaw" when they are applying for approval of a new device based on its similarity to another unsafe device.

Gladly signed. I can't believe this is even an issue. If it goes inside the body to restore normal function...it had better darn well work!

This is utterly astonishing - that anyone should even BEGIN to consider licensing something that doesn't work!

This is inhumane, and more evidence that Party of No put its corporate masters ahead of the common good every time! Signed and shared, thanks.

Signed, I use to work at a medical device company and it was outrageous how some employees would handle the implants; dropping them on the floor, kicking them, and throwing them. The company says they care, but they don't, they just want your money like every other greedy company.

Thank you for writing your members of Congress to ‘Fix the Flaw’ before the medical-device safety bill is passed. The more people we can get involved, the more potential we have to close this gaping safety loophole. Thanks Nancy.

THE PROBLEM IS FDA DOES NOT TEST!!!!!!!!! - FDA DOES NOT MAKE TESTINGS!!!!!!!!!!!! APPROVALS ARE MADE BASED ON WHAT LABS AND OR MANUFACTURERS SAY ABOUT THEIR PRIVATE TESTINGS ! MEDICINES WE TAKE ARE NEVER TESTED BY FDA! DOCTORS RECOMMEND WHAT THEY LEARN IS "GOOD" IN LABS OPINIONS..........

noted, signed, tweeted, and shared. There is no doubt that when there is an unsafe devise, and it is replaced by another devise, the devise replacing the unsafe one should be safe. Only in America where money is worth more than people would such a ridiculous thing happen. Sometimes, I can't believe what we as voters allow. I know a lot of it is ignorance; we aren't aware, but we should be because we know how big business will do anything to make money. Look at the tobacco industry and the automobile industry.
