***PRESS CALL ON SEPTEMBER 28 AT 10:30 ET // 9:30 AM CT***
PRESS CALL: U.S. Representatives Colin Allred and Sharice Davids Join Protect Our Care to Call for Lower Drug Prices Now
U.S. Reps. Allred & Davids Will Call for Congress to Pass Medicare Negotiation for Lower Drug Prices in Budget Agreement
Washington, DC — On Tuesday, September 28 at 10:30 ET // 9:30 AM CT, U.S. Representatives Colin Allred (D-TX-32) and Sharice Davids (D-KS-03) will join Protect Our Care for a virtual press conference to call on their colleagues in Congress to deliver lower costs and better care to Americans by passing all of President Biden’s health care priorities in the Build Back Better budget package, including allowing Medicare to negotiate drug prices. Reps. Allred and Davids recently joined U.S. Representatives Cindy Axne (D-IA-03), Andy Kim (D-NJ-03), and Abigail Spanberger (D-VA-07) on an Op-Ed in the Washington Post outlining the strong case for allowing Medicare to negotiate lower drug prices.
Congress is closing in on a budget agreement that will transform the lives of American families nationwide. President Biden and Democrats are leading the charge to include Medicare negotiation and other key health care priorities in the Build Back Better package, but the fight is not over: Big Pharma is ramping up its lobbying and scare tactics to protect its profits and lie to the American people. This event will make clear that this is not the time for half measures; Congress must give Medicare the power to negotiate for lower drug prices for all Americans.
U.S. Representative Colin Allred (D-TX-32)
