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

WASHINGTON -

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.
