Webinar: A National Mobilization Moment on Federal Drug Pricing
Now is the critical moment to end high drug prices and costs for all of America’s families. All signs are showing that Congress and the White House are ready to take meaningful action on lowering prescription drug prices, as well as other key health priorities that the savings from a comprehensive drug pricing package would make possible. But this isn’t a done deal. It’s up to our collective action – and partners from every corner of the country – to mobilize and push Congress for the strongest possible drug pricing solution. It’s time Congress finally puts an end to egregious drug industry practices that have come at the expense of America’s families.
In this webinar, Families USA and key partners, including Lower Drug Prices Now Coalition, Patients for Affordable Drugs, and West Health, discussed:
- What this moment means for consumers and voters;
- The current political landscape on Capitol Hill;
- Which policy proposals are on the table; and
- A direct Call to Action and an advocacy toolkit to utilize for this critical push.
