U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) joined AARP Minnesota for a tele-town hall Monday on the urgent need to allow Medicare to negotiate drug prices. More than 16,500 Minnesota seniors joined the tele-town hall.
A leader in the fight to lower prescription drug costs, Klobuchar highlighted the importance of passing legislation to allow Medicare to negotiate drug prices in the upcoming reconciliation package.
“The solution is to allow for the negotiation by Medicare – the government representing the 46 million seniors – so it will help both seniors and tax-payers...This is our moment to get this done.”
