TODAY: Health Care Advocates and Storytellers React to New Poll Showing Arizonans’ Broad Support for Prescription Drug Reform

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

On Thursday, June 3 at 3:00 PM MT // 6:00 PM ET, Protect Our Care will host 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 Arizona voters. Lowering prescription drug prices in particular remains a priority for voters, with an overwhelming majority 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 12 key states, including Arizona, throughout the summer.
