PRESS CALL: Health Care Advocates and Storytellers React to New Poll Showing Delawareans’ Broad Support for Prescription Drug Reform

West Health Poll Shows Strong Support For Medicare Negotiation Among Voters in Delaware

DOVER, DE — On Monday, June 7, State Senator Sarah McBride and a patient storyteller from Dover will join Protect Our Care for a virtual press conference to discuss a new poll conducted by Global Strategies Group on behalf of West Health showing health care is a top priority for Delaware voters. 

Lowering prescription drug prices in particular remains a priority for Delaware voters, with an overwhelming majority of Delawareans reporting that they support giving Medicare the power to negotiate prescription drug prices for all Americans. The poll also shows that voters reject drug companies’ arguments on innovation. 

Protect Our Care recently launched The Campaign to Reduce Drug Prices, a seven-figure investment to demonstrate the urgent need for comprehensive legislation to lower drug prices. Protect Our Care will host events both nationally and in 13 key states, including Delaware, throughout the summer. 

PRESS CALL: 

WHO:

  • Sarah McBride, State Senator for Delaware’s 1st District
  • Brad Woodhouse, Executive Director of Protect Our Care
  • Vanessa Ladson, Dover resident who faces high prescription drug costs
  • Anne Shoup, Communications Director for Protect Our Care
