PRESS CALL ADVISORY: DCCC Chairman Maloney and Frontline House Democrats To Discuss Importance of Negotiating for Lower Drug Prices To Build Back Better

Washington, D.C. — On Friday, the Center for American Progress Action Fund will host a press call with Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY), chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC); Rep. Sharice Davids (D-KS); Rep. Lauren Underwood (D-IL); and Rep. Susan Wild (D-PA) to discuss Democratic efforts to lower drug prices as Congress works to draft the Build Back Better reconciliation package. The speakers will discuss the importance of empowering Medicare to negotiate for lower prices, extending those prices to individuals covered by other health plans, and using drug cost savings to make other critical health investments. The members of Congress will also discuss how delivering lower drug costs will be a political asset for Frontline House Democrats in next year’s midterm elections.
