Press Release

Democrats Must Stand United to Lower Drug Prices

WASHINGTON -

The following is a statement from Alex Lawson, Executive Director of Social Security Works, in response to this morning’s White House fact sheet on drug pricing and President Biden’s upcoming speech:

“Today, President Biden is giving Congress a mandate to lower drug prices for everyone in America. Now, Democrats need to stand united and pass drug pricing reform into law as part of the Build Back Better package.

Any Democrat who tries to block or water down drug pricing reform is betraying President Biden and his agenda. Worse, they are betraying the American people.”

Social Security Works' mission is to: Protect and improve the economic security of disadvantaged and at-risk populations; Safeguard the economic security of those dependent, now or in the future, on Social Security; and Maintain Social Security as a vehicle of social justice.
