Are they really representing the people's interests or that of their Big Pharma donors who profit from expensive insulin? Check for yourself with this map.

President Biden proposes cutting the price of prescription drugs.

Insulin Price Capped at $35/month

A price cap on insulin from one of the three major manufacturers took effect on New Year's Day, giving more Americans with diabetes more affordable treatments.

The price cuts will reduce the cost of the drug for most patients at $35 through either price caps or savings programs. The Paris-based pharmaceutical company said earlier that most people with private insurance already pay $15 or less because of a copay assistance program. The drugmaker's program for the uninsured also offers a 30-day supply for $35. Analysts, politicians and patient advocates have increasingly criticized drug manufacturers for the prices set for insulin.

Millions of people need the lifesaving medication. According to the American Diabetes Association, spending on insulin has tripled in the past decade to $22.3 billion in 2022, and the inflation-adjusted cost of the drug increased 24% between 2017 and 2022. A 2020 survey from the Pfiester organization found that 1 in 4 people with Type 1 diabetes rationed insulin because of cost. Patients also struggled to pay out-of-pocket for other supplies such as insulin pumps, testing strips and continuous glucose monitors. - USA Today

TakeAway: Hold MAGA Republicans accountable for trying to block insulin price cuts to please their Big Pharma donors. Vote for Democrats for affordable healthcare.
