“Bravo to President Biden for taking on Big Pharma price gouging today, calling on Congress to enact commonsense measures which will lower drug costs for the American people. The President’s proposals honor what seniors and their advocates have been seeking for years – first and foremost, allowing Medicare to negotiate prices with drug-makers. We also applaud the President’s call to use savings from price negotiation to enact a long-awaited expansion of Medicare to include dental, vision, and hearing coverage.  Congress should heed the President’s message and deliver Americans relief from punishing drug prices — and provide seniors with care for their eyes, ears, and teeth, which are the gateways to improved overall health.  After years of advocacy and discussion of these issues, seniors deserve action now. Thank you, President Biden, for advancing their cause.” – Max Richtman, President and CEO, National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare
