Lowering the Cost of Drugs is the Top 3 Most Popular Parts of the Biden Budget

New polling from Navigator Research confirms President Biden’s proposed budget of lowering health care costs and making the wealthy and corporations pay their fair share is overwhelmingly popular, regardless of party. 

Two of the most popular parts of President Biden’s proposed budget are extending the $35 a month cap on insulin prices to Americans who need it, not just seniors (82%), and expanding the number of prescription drugs Medicare can negotiate lower prices for (83%). These build on popular reforms already passed in the Inflation Reduction Act. Not only are both reforms widely supported, but they have high levels of support with independents – 79% and 80%, respectively. In addition to those reforms that lower costs, Biden’s plan to close tax loopholes for companies like Big Pharma has strong support (77%). 

The policies outlined are in direct opposition to the Republican threats to defund Medicare and Medicaid and to repeal the Affordable Care Act and the Inflation Reduction Act.
