News | April 1, 2022

On Thurs., U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), Chair of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee, and U.S. Senator Reverend Raphael Warnock (D-GA) joined Protect Our Care and patients from Washington state and Georgia for a virtual roundtable to discuss their fight to lower the cost of lifesaving prescription drugs for patients—including by bringing down insulin costs for the 1 in 10 patients across the country with diabetes.

During the event, Senators Murray and Warnock underscored the urgent need to bring down prescription drug costs for patients, highlighting Democrats’ bold ideas to do exactly that, and made clear that—especially given bipartisan interest in the issue—they are determined to find a path to lower the cost of insulin so that everyone who needs the drug can afford it.
