Protect Medicare on its 56th birthday! Sign Now to Help Stop Pharma Price Gouging.

U.S. Congress

56 years ago, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed Medicare into law. Since then, generations of seniors and people with disabilities have had access to health care.

But Medicare currently isn’t allowed to use its bargaining power to secure a better deal for beneficiaries or taxpayers.

This has to change.

Sign the petition to add your name to demand lower drug prices and a better deal for Medicare.

It’s ridiculous that our government is prohibited from negotiating lower prescription drug prices for seniors under Medicare.

Americans already pay the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs and pharmaceutical corporations continue to raise prices. Meanwhile, retirees and their families can’t afford the medicines their doctors prescribe.

Action is overdue. There is no reason why Medicare should not be allowed to negotiate the same way that Veterans Administration does now.

We urge you to celebrate Medicare's 56th birthday by passing legislation now to implement this common-sense policy.
