Republicans Put Millions of Lives in Jeopardy By Voting Against Insulin Cost Cap

Washington, DC — Today, Republicans in the Senate blocked a critical health care provision of the Inflation Reduction Act. The amendment would have capped insulin at $35 a month for millions of diabetics with private insurance. In response, Protect Our Care Chair Leslie Dach issued the following statement: 

“The Republican vote today will cost lives. Far too many diabetics in the U.S. are forced to ration or skip doses because of the outrageous price of insulin. Millions more have to choose between paying for food or rent because they cannot afford the drug they need to stay alive.  Make no mistake today Republicans chose big drug company greed over the needs of the American people.”
