Negotiating Drug Prices

I am baffled. Someone explain to me why this is happening:

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) told reporters he would pursue legislation to lower drug prices, but will not pursue the Democratic proposal on negotiations.

“I don’t want to mess with the government negotiating prices with the private sector,” he said

What am I missing? Medicare D was another enormous tax for everyone and yet Republicans have never wanted the government to negotiate drug prices with Big Pharma. WTF? Is this because they are being supported by Big Pharma on the the back end? God I hate politics.
