Congress: Let Medicare Negotiate!
Big Pharma's greed forces patients to choose between paying for medication and paying the bills. But there's a solution being debated in Congress right now: Let Medicare negotiate directly to lower the price of prescriptions.
Drug prices are out of control:
Americans pay twice as much for prescription drugs as other nations.
Nearly 1 in 3 adults report not taking their medicines as prescribed due to cost.
42% of cancer patients deplete their entire net worth within the first 2 years of treatment, in part due to high drug prices.
Medicare negotiation will lower prices and fix our broken system
Drug corporations will be required to justify their high prices, and Medicare would be allowed to curb unfair price hikes.
Americans overwhelmingly support the plan:
86% of Americans -- majorities of Democrats, Republicans, and Independents -- support allowing Medicare to negotiate.
Big Pharma is lobbying furiously to protect its profits, but Congress needs to listen to patients. Raise your voice and tell your representatives: Let Medicare Negotiate!
