MADISON – Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Affordable Insulin Now Act, which caps out-of-pocket insulin costs at $35. State Treasurer and candidate for U.S. Senate Sarah Godlewski applauded this commonsense solution that will dramatically reduce drug costs for the 31% of Americans with diabetes who rely on insulin to manage their condition and urged the U.S. Senate to quickly pass this critical legislation.

“While this is a good first step towards finally lowering the cost of prescription drugs, we have been here before, and Wisconsinites can’t afford for Congress to give up the fight again,” said Sarah Godlewski. “Republicans and Democrats alike in the Senate need to put people before their corporate donors and finally get this done. I have the guts to take on Big Pharma and won’t back down from this fight.”

Lowering prescription drug costs is a clear priority for Godlewski. Last month, she released a plan to reduce prescription drug prices and rein in Big Pharma, and last week in a new TV ad, she called out Washington politicians for refusing to stand up to Big Pharma and lower prescription drug prices across the board.
