POC Will Sponsor Lite-Brite Display Outside of Phrma Headquarters Urging Congress to “Fight Pharma: Lower Rx Prices Now!”

Washington, DC – On Sunday, July 31, 2022 at 8:45 PM ET, Protect Our Care will host a Lite-Brite demonstration outside PhRMA’s headquarters in D.C., urging the Democrats in Congress to rein in Big Pharma’s greed and deliver real relief to millions of families. President Biden and Democrats are leading the charge to drive down health care costs and level the playing field for working families, by including Medicare negotiation and other key health care priorities in the reconciliation package. But Big Pharma is not going down without a fight. 

Big drug companies spent over $100 million lobbying this year alone to block any reform that brings down drug prices at the expense of their sky-high profits. With the help of Republican allies, drug companies have been relentless in their efforts to spread lies about the Democrats’ plan to lower the cost of prescription drugs. This event will make clear that Congress must act now to put an end to drug company greed and put patients first.
