National Day of Action: Stop Big Pharma’s Price Gouging!
Thursday, October 10, 2019• 4:00 PM
No matter where people live, what they look like or what’s in their wallets, at some point everyone is going to get sick and need prescription medicine to feel better. But too many families today can’t afford medicines. Instead, they have to choose between filling prescriptions and paying the rent because Big Pharma has rigged the system to maximize their profits at the expense of patients’ health.
There was just a bill introduced in the House of Representatives that, if passed, would lower drug prices for millions of Americans who receive their insurance from Medicare, Medicaid, or their employer: H.R. 3.
H.R. 3 would also hold drug companies accountable for their price-gouging. and finally level the playing field between the cost of medicines in the United States and other comparable nations, where people pay much less for the same drugs. Unfortunately, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already announced he will block any vote on H.R. 3.
We're calling on Senator Josh Hawley to do his part and put people over profits and Big Pharma! It's time our elected officials take their jobs and our health seriously. Join us and our partners to demand Sen. Hawley hear our stories and demand that he call on Sen. Mitch McConnell to stop preventing action on lowering drug prices.
