Right now, hundreds of billions of dollars from Medicare is going directly into the pockets of greedy pharmaceutical corporations. These outrageous payments increase Medicare premiums and eat into our Social Security benefits.

Families across the U.S. continue to get hammered by the outrageous cost of life-saving drugs. The “Lower Drug Costs Now Act of 2019” would allow Medicare to negotiate prescription drug prices, saving Medicare $345 billion over 6 years and saving U.S. households $158 billion in reduced out-of-pocket expenses over 10 years.

Join Social Security Works in telling Congress to strengthen and pass H.R.3 to lower prescription drug prices in the United States.

Health care should not be for sale. And the health of our people must not be held hostage to the profit-hungry pharmaceutical industry.

H.R. 3 takes a major step forward by requiring the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to negotiate prices for certain drugs, a stark change from current law which prohibits negotiating for drug prices. Let’s tell Congress to strengthen H.R. 3, and pass it into law.

“Drug prices are too high. The House of Representatives has a new plan that would lower drug prices for everyone, and save Medicare at least $345 billion! Strengthen and pass H.R. 3!”
