DNC on House Democrats Passing Bill to Lower Drug Costs

DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement after House Democrats passed the Elijah E. Cummings Lower Drug Costs Now Act (H.R. 3):

“The difference between the parties couldn’t be clearer: Democrats are fighting for the good of the American people while Trump and Republicans are defending the greed of Big Pharma. Democrats are keeping our promises on health care. We’re working to lower drug prices for middle-class families and passing historic investments in Medicare, while Trump’s agenda spikes costs, jeopardizes protections for people with pre-existing conditions, and slashes billions from Medicare and Medicaid. As Trump and Republicans break their promises at every turn, Democrats will keep working to improve the lives of everyday Americans.”
