Alliance Activists Make the Case for the Build Back Better Act

Alliance chapters across the country have been working hard to solidify support for the Build Back Better Act. In Connecticut on Wednesday, Mary Elia, Corresponding Secretary for the Connecticut Alliance, joined the U.S. Senators from Connecticut, Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy, and State Senator Matt Lesser at a press conference to bring attention to the provisions in the bill that will lower drug prices.

In addition to drug price negotiation, those provisions include a $35 per-month limit on the cost of insulin under Medicare and a cap on out-of-pocket prescription drug costs at $2,000 per year.

“We also support limiting drug corporations’ ability to raise prices faster than inflation, another key part of the bill,” said Robert Roach, Jr., President of the Alliance. “Together, these provisions will allow millions of Americans to afford the drugs they need to stay healthy.”

Members of the Colorado Alliance joined Rep. Jason Crow (CO) on Thursday to build support for the legislation in their state, and Nevada Alliance members joined three of their Representatives, Steven Horsford, Susie Lee and Dina Titus, on Friday to amplify the message.
