Black women are three times more likely to die from a pregnancy-related cause than white women. It’s past time we address the disparities in our health care system. We must pass @RepUnderwood ’s Black Maternal Health Momnibus Act of 2021. #BlackLivesMatter

The bipartisan PRICED Act will limit the monopoly power of Big Pharma and will enable small manufacturers to enter the market, saving the federal government at least $7B over 10 years, according to estimates from @HHS . #FairDrugPricing

The cost of inaction is high. In 2017, ALL of the top 10 highest-expenditure drugs in Medicare Part B were biologic products. Biologics can be expensive even with private insurance, with some treatments costing tens of thousands of dollars per year.

Extended exclusivity allows Big Pharma to prevent competition and pad their pockets. The #PRICEDAct will end special protections for biologics, a class of bio-based drugs, by reducing their exclusivity from 12 years to 5 years.

The 4 largest Big Oil companies collectively made $27 billion in profits during the first quarter of this year. They’re using these profits to pad the pockets of their executives and shareholders rather than help reduce prices at the pump. Today we begin to hold them accountable.

We cannot allow Big Oil to continue to rip off the American people. The Consumer Fuel Price Gouging Prevention Act will empower the Federal Trade Commission to go after oil and gas price gougers. It is time for Congress to step in, do our job, and help protect American consumers.

Thank you @POTUS for taking these additional measures! We will continue working around the clock to get formula back on the shelves to #FeedOurInfants . No parent or caregiver should have to fear being unable to feed their child.

I’m taking two new steps to increase baby formula supply: - Invoking the Defense Production Act to increase domestic production - Launching Operation Fly Formula to use federal planes to fly formula in from abroad We're making sure safe formula gets to all who need it.

Last night I voted for an emergency spending package to address the baby formula shortage - a key step to help #FeedOurInfants . Our work is not done. We will continue to investigate how this happened and hold responsible parties accountable to ensure this never happens again.

Going to the grocery store & seeing empty shelves with no infant formula in sight is distressing for any parent. Today, @HouseDemocrats & I are voting for a bill that will help #FeedOurInfants by providing the FDA with the resources it needs to address this shortage.

As we move forward, we will carefully study the impacts of this pilot with our partners @UChicagoCrown . By focusing our investments where they’ll be most impactful – by giving folks living in poverty what they need most, money - we will create lasting change here in Cook County.
