Tell Nancy Pelosi: We need bold action to take on big pharma and drastically lower drug prices!
1 out of 5 Americans can’t afford their prescriptions. Tell Nancy Pelosi: We need bold action now. Democrats must take on the pharmaceutical industry and lower drug prices for everyone.
Reps. Lloyd Doggett (D-TX), Peter Welch (D-VT) and Elijah Cummings (D-MD) have introduced a new bill that, at long last, allows Medicare to negotiate drug prices. And because this bill will receive massive resistance from the pharmaceutical industry, Doggett and his colleagues have crafted the bill with real teeth. The Medicare Negotiation and Competitive Licensing Act of 2019 is written in a way that if a drug company refuses to negotiate in good faith, the bill empowers the government to allow generic competition and end the company’s monopoly. There are already 125 co-sponsors in the House, this should be our starting point.
Tell Nancy Pelosi, Richard Neal and Frank Pallone: It’s time to bring a big bold bill to lower drug prices to the House floor now!
