“Medicare should negotiate drug prices across the board... This isn’t a partisan issue. Alzheimer’s, diabetes, and cancer don’t care if you’re a Democrat or a Republican. This is about whether or not you and your loved ones can afford the prescription drugs you need.”
April 2021, Joint Address to Congress
"There is no reason why Americans pay two or three times as much for drugs that are manufactured in the U.S. as do people in other countries. So, we're going to go and do something the old-fashioned way, an American tradition: negotiate to get a better price. Congress looks like it's on its way to making [Medicare negotiation] happen, and we will do everything we can at HHS to support their efforts."
“One of my top priorities from my chairmanship of the Senate Finance Committee — to lower drug prices — will continue, in addition to other measures within the jurisdiction of the Judiciary Committee where I’ll advance my bipartisan legislation to stop anti-competitive practices in the pharmaceutical drug industry.”
"Patients for Affordable Drugs brings a much-needed voice and perspective to the debate about lowering the cost of prescription drugs. People across the country are worried about high drug prices, and many are struggling because they can’t afford their medications. We look forward to working with P4AD to solve this critical issue."
