The business model of the pharmaceutical industry is greed.

You can walk into the pharmacy today for a refill of the exact same medicine you've used for 10 years, and the price could be DOUBLE what it was when you got your last refill. And there's nothing you can do about it โ€” unless Congress summons the courage to end Big Pharma's greed.

What does the pharmaceutical industry do with the record-breaking profits they make year after year? Over the past 20 years, they have spent over $4.5 BILLION on lobbying. You got that? That's BILLIONS โ€” with a 'B' โ€” to guarantee they can continue to rip off the American people.

Does anybody seriously think it is 'radical' to suggest that the pharmaceutical industry should not be able to charge the American people FOUR TIMES as much as other major countries pay for the exact same prescription drugs?

How many people need to die, how many people need to get unnecessarily sicker, how many people will needlessly suffer before the Congress will summon the courage to finally take on the greed of the pharmaceutical industry?

Let me tell you what a dysfunctional health care system is all about. In our country today, nearly 1 out of every 4 Americans cannot afford the medications that their doctors prescribe. How insane is that?!

It is not the case anywhere else on the planet, but uniquely, here in America, the pharmaceutical industry can raise prices at any time they want, and to any price they want. UNACCEPTABLE!

Now is the time for Congress to finally have the courage to take on the pharmaceutical industry. They cannot continue to charge us the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs.

Why is it that the pharmaceutical industry is able to charge the American people the highest prices on the planet for prescription drugs? Because their greed goes unchallenged in Washington, D.C. I say we put an end to that. Join me tonight for a live address.

You know, I don't recall seeing Big Pharma and their lobbyists on the ballot in 2020, yet in Washington today, they are calling the shots. That has got to end. The American people want us to lower prescription drug prices. I say we listen to the people and get it done.

Cost for one vial of Humalog insulin in 2009: $93 Cost for the same vial of insulin in 2021: $297 As long as the greed of the pharmaceutical industry continues to go unchecked, they can charge YOU, the American people, whatever price they want! Enough. Time to end their greed.

The expansion of Medicare to cover dental, hearing and vision is supported by 84% of the public and is one of the most important provisions in Build Back Better. It's what the American people want and, after waiting over 50 years, what they are going to get.

I don't know about my Republican colleagues, but I think it is outrageous that it is considered "normal" in this country for working class moms to be back at work within days of giving birth.

The most radical thing we can do in regards to the climate crisis is to continue to do nothing.
