New Poll: A Supermajority Of Voters Support Build Back Better's Cap On Insulin Prices


On Friday, the House passed the Build Back Better Act which, among many other things, will allow Medicare to negotiate the prices of certain pharmaceuticals, including insulin. It also creates a cap so that no one pays more than $35 per month for insulin.

New polling from Data for Progress finds that Americans overwhelmingly support this proposal. By a +79-point margin, a supermajority of voters support capping insulin costs at $35 per month. This includes Democrats by a +90-point margin, Independents by a +76-point margin, and Republicans by a +71-point margin.
