Tell the House Negotiate Prescription Drug Benefits Under Medicare Part D

Wednesday, July 27, 2011 at 10am, Longworth Cafeteria

According to economist Joseph Stiglitz the U.S. can save $1 trillion in 10 years by negotiating the prescription drug benefit in Medicare; this is not a tax this is simply applying standard business practices and saving the taxpayers money.

Join us as we lobby the House to protect the benefits in Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security. We have prepared packets which show price comparisons between common drugs purchased for the Veterans Administration and Medicare; Medicare often pays up to 48% more for the exact same drugs.

Click here to RSVP.

Can't join us for the lobby day? Sign the petition.
