Tell the Senate: Lower prescription drug prices now!

Sign now: Tell Democrats to finally pass their bill to lower prescription drug prices!
Republican obstruction has made it difficult for Democrats to keep their promise to enact comprehensive drug pricing reform. But now, with inflation dominating headlines, we have the momentum to finally pass it, even without Republican votes. We need to keep pushing until this bill passes!

Tell the Senate: Use budget reconciliation to lower prescription drug prices now!
