New Navigator polling reveals that voters view lowering drug costs as President Biden’s top accomplishment. The poll specifically named giving Medicare the power to negotiate lower drug costs and capping insulin costs for seniors at $35 per month, which were both included in the Inflation Reduction Act. These policies enjoy widespread, bipartisan support: according to Navigator, “lowering prescription drug prices by allowing Medicare to negotiate drug prices is President Biden’s most supported accomplishment, earning support from over three in four Americans (77 percent), including 71 percent of independents and 64 percent of Republicans.”
Protect Our Care recently launched the Medicare Autumn campaign to educate seniors about new benefits that will help them save on their prescription drugs thanks to President Biden and Democrats in Congress. Read more here.
In addition to finding broad support for President Biden’s action to lower drug costs, the poll also found that Americans are hearing most about this accomplishment when compared to other policy achievements. A majority of Americans (57%) have heard of his success in lowering drug prices through Medicare negotiation and capping insulin costs.
