ALERT: Contact Courtney, Hayes, Larson to Support Prescription Drug Bill in Congress

October 18, 2019

Today we’re sharing an alert from Protect Our Care CT:

HR 3, Speaker Pelosi’s bill to reduce prescription drug prices, is being acted on by key committees NOW. Connecticut US Representatives Courtney, Hayes and Larson are on these committees and need to hear from constituents who support HR 3 and want lower drug prices. (Protect Our Care CT members recently met with Rep. Courtney. He is supporting the bill. You should thank him for his support.)

How to get in touch with Connecticut US Representatives:

Speaker Pelosi’s bill would allow the government to negotiate the price of insulin and as many as 250 name-brand drugs each year for Medicare beneficiaries. Drug companies would also have to offer the agreed-on prices to private insurers or face penalties. PhRMA, which represents the country’s leading biopharmaceutical research companies, and related organizations are lobbying heavily against the bill. They argue that limiting drug prices would limit research and innovation.
