Why should you vote? To get lower prescription drugs!

There is no reason Americans should continue to pay the highest prescription drug prices in the world. More and more families are struggling to pay for the medicines they need, especially older Americans. Some are even forced to choose between paying for medicine, food, and other necessities.

One of the main reasons drug prices are so high is that pharmaceutical companies are allowed to set prices with no transparency. Then they spend billions on advertising and lobbying to protect their monopolies.

With elections coming up, it’s vital that we pledge to vote for candidates who are willing to stand up to big drug companies and enact new measures that will help lower drug costs for all Americans.
