Senators Baldwin and Warnock Are Leading the Charge to Lower Prescription Drug Prices, Cap Insulin Costs, and Expand Affordable Coverage

Washington, DC — On Thursday, March 10 at 12:15 PM ET, U.S. Senators Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) and Reverend Raphael Warnock (D-GA) will headline a virtual press conference hosted by Protect Our Care. Ahead of the American Rescue Plan anniversary, speakers will celebrate the law’s provisions to make health care premiums more affordable than ever and discuss the steps Congress can take now to further lower Americans’ health care costs. 

Senators Baldwin and Warnock, joined by their Democratic colleagues, are working tirelessly to lower costs by capping insulin prices, giving Medicare the power to negotiate drug prices, and keeping health care premiums low. If passed, these measures could put thousands of dollars in working families’ pockets and make health care affordable at a time when patients need relief most.
