The impossible choices facing too many Americans

Imagine standing in line at the pharmacy counter, waiting to pick up your medication. But when you finally reach the front, the pharmacist tells you the price - and it's more than what you spend on groceries in an entire month. You're faced with an impossible decision: pay for your medication and risk not being able to afford food and rent, or skip your medication and risk your health.

This scenario is far too common in America today, and it's unacceptable.

What kind of sick, twisted world are we living in where people have to choose between their health and basic necessities like food and shelter?

Last year, every single Republican voted against lowering prescription drug prices. And now they control the House.

We need a strong Democratic majority ready to take on Big Pharma and fight for the well-being of every single person in this country.

Chip in now and be part of our movement to lower prescription drug costs for all Americans.

I'm sick and tired of seeing people suffer because of Big Pharma's pricing practices. We need to demand transparency and accountability. And we must ensure everyone can afford the medication they need to stay healthy.

As someone who proudly voted for the Inflation Reduction Act, I know that we can make progress. The IRA is already helping to lower the cost of prescription medication for millions of seniors on Medicare, but it's only a first step. We must go further and make sure that every American can afford the medicine they need to stay healthy.

I am committed to working for policies that prioritize the well-being of the people over corporate profits. But I can't do it without your help.

Republicans have repeatedly shown that they have no interest in lowering medication costs for Americans. We've got to replace them with leaders ready to take on Big Pharma.

Donate now and support our grassroots movement for lower prescription drug costs for all Americans!

Yours in the fight,
