$1,500 is how much, on average, a senior on Medicare who needs insulin will save annually because of the $35 cap on insulin passed in the Inflation Reduction Act. Thanks to the Inflation Reduction Act, further savings are on the way as drugs are subject to Medicare price talks.
And yet, for some, the savings are even greater. Last weekend, a woman approached me in Culpeper County to tell me how my vote had changed her life and retirement. She said that in the past, she had paid as much as $1,000 per month to buy her prescribed insulin. Now, she pays $35 per month for the same medication.
That is why I do this job. I fiercely believe in enacting change that improves the quality of life for the people I serve. I know it’s just one step in making healthcare accessible and affordable, but to the 6,000 people on Medicare in my district who require insulin to survive, it’s a significant breakthrough. And, as more drug prices fall thanks to the Inflation Reduction Act, more Virginians will spend less on life-saving medication.
We have made progress in lowering costs, but there is more to do. Meanwhile, national Republicans are already plotting ways to attack us, afraid of what this extremely popular drug plan could do to Republicans’ chances in 2024. Republicans’ attacks have no basis in reality, but we have to respond all the same to defend these life-saving price cuts.
With your help, I can advocate for changes that put extra money in the pockets of those who need it most and respond to these baseless Republican attacks. If you can contribute $5 today, we can continue this vital work.
