Tell Congress to oppose government price setting and support innovation for patients!
As we speak, lawmakers in Washington DC are finalizing a reconciliation bill that will devastate America’s innovative biopharmaceutical industry – dealing a $300 billion dollar blow to the sector that has saved millions of lives and is working tirelessly to end the global COVID-19 pandemic.
Efforts by Congress to impose government price setting in Medicare will result in fewer research and development dollars going toward groundbreaking treatments for patients with life-limiting and fatal conditions.
Even worse, the proposed legislation will likely lead to the loss of over 590,000 jobs across the country – dealing a devastating blow to our economy and to families everywhere.
In Illinois, this means a direct biopharma job loss of almost 6,000 jobs – a devastating toll to our economy.
This policy will chill future investment in next-generation cures for patients in need. Tell Congress to oppose government price setting on American biopharmaceutical innovation.
