The COVID pandemic reminds us that we are all human, we can all get sick, and sometimes we all need prescription medications to feel better and take care of our families.
But for Big Pharma and all their friends in the Trump Administration, today’s crisis is just another chance to price gouge patients trying to stay healthy.
At Lower Drug Prices Now, we have uncovered the five big drug corporations addicted to price gouging and poised to profit off future COVID vaccines. While the Trump Administration is funneling them billions for research through secret contracts and special tax breaks, there is a growing army of people demanding that we hold Big Pharma accountable for inflating their profits at the expense of our health.
Champions like Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) are working on rewriting the law to block any single drug corporation from getting monopoly control to set prices on COVID vaccines. And Rep. Schakowsky’s bill, the MMAPPP Act, already has bipartisan support. If Congress passes it, the new law will require that COVID drugs developed with our tax dollars must be affordable for everyone who needs them.
These five drug corporations are addicted to price gouging. They will not stop overcharging us unless Congress acts now!
