Time to Stop Rx Greed

Tell your legislators to lower prescription drug prices NOW.

Americans pay the highest drug prices in the world while drug companies rake in billions of dollars in profit. Tell your legislators that we need to:

  • Protect older Americans. No one should have to choose between food and medication.
  • Make prescription drugs affordable. Medication can't work if you can't afford to take it.
  • Develop commonsense solutions to lowering Rx prices. There are several pieces of legislation under consideration that would lower prescription drug prices for Connecticut residents. We need bipartisan support for these bills.

 

The pharmaceutical industry lobbies hard to influence our elected officials. It's time for Connecticut residents to make our voices heard and to ask our leaders to put people over prescription drug profits.

Take a moment to ask your legislators to take action THIS SESSION to lower the cost of prescription medication for Connecticut residents.

Dear [Decision Maker],

Americans are paying the highest drug prices in the world, and many people struggle to keep up with the cost of their prescription medication. A national survey conducted by AARP found that 72 percent of older voters are concerned about the cost of their medications, and nearly 40 percent said that they did not a fill a prescription provided by their doctors with cost being the most common reason why. We need your help to lower drug prices, and we are asking you to take action THIS SESSION to lower prescription drug prices.





No one should have to choose between food and medicine, but 40 percent of older Americans are concerned that they will have to make that choice at some point. It's time for Connecticut to join states throughout the country in passing bipartisan legislation aimed at lower prescription drug prices.

Sincerely,
