AARP Minnesota released a series of videos featuring former Minnesota Supreme Court Justice Alan Page as part of “Protect Voters 50+,” a comprehensive voter engagement campaign to support and protect Minnesotans age 50-plus as they vote in the 2020 elections. The videos were being released as Minnesotans began early voting with new rules around absentee balloting; and on the heels of a national release of bipartisan battle ground polls by AARP showing that voters in key states age 65-plus will once again be a deciding factor in this year’s election and, even as there are strong partisan preferences, Social Security and Medicare are unifying issues for voters 50-plus.

According to state data, drug price hikes in Minnesota about $110 Billion annually. That’s equal to 4x Minnesota’s state spending. Big prescription drug companies are making billions while charging those in need the highest prices. No Minnesotan should be forced to make the difficult decisions between paying for life-saving medications and buying food. It’s time to stop Rx greed!
