TODAY: Senator Tammy Baldwin and Representative Ruben Gallego Join Protect Our Care For Events in Wisconsin and Arizona to Discuss Once-in-a-Generation Legislation to Lower Health Care Costs

By September 8, 2022No Comments

***MEDIA ADVISORY FOR THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 8***

Wisconsin Senator Baldwin, Rep. Gallego (AZ-07), and Advocates to Discuss the Inflation Reduction Act’s Impact on Lowering Health Care Costs for Millions of Americans

The Inflation Reduction Act will lower the cost of health insurance and drive down prescription drug prices by giving Medicare the power to negotiate, capping seniors’ out-of-pocket costs for drugs at $2,000 per year, capping insulin costs, and stopping Big Pharma’s egregious price hikes. This bill will help lower costs for millions of working families, address the deep racial inequities in our health care system and save lives. This historic legislation ends a 20-year era of pharmaceutical companies’ greed taking precedence over the health and well-being of the American people.

With the Inflation Reduction Act, President Biden and Democrats have made history and  delivered on their promise to lower health care costs and rein in high drug prices — a stark contrast from  every Republican who voted no. American families have been asking and waiting for this day, and now help is on the way.
