70 Percent Of House Democrats Urge Biden To Include Medicare Negotiation In American Families Plan

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The following statement was issued by David Mitchell, a cancer patient and founder of Patients For Affordable Drugs Now, commenting on the letter from more than 155 House Democrats today calling on the White House to deliver on campaign promises to lower drug prices through Medicare negotiation as part of the American Families Plan:

Today the message from Congress is clear: Allowing Medicare to negotiate lower drug prices must be a top priority this year. Over 155 members of Congress — 70 percent of the House Democratic Caucus — have now joined in calling on the president to make Medicare negotiation a part of the American Families Plan to bring relief to patients. Nine out of 10 Americans support Medicare negotiation, and momentum for its enactment is growing in Washington and across the country. We intend to help the president and supporters in Congress get it done this year.”
