Help Combat Rising Prices of Lifesaving Prescription Drugs

This petition had 1,212 supporters

Patients all across America are deeply affected by this trend of price hikes by pharmaceutical companies. With nearly 60 brand-name medications doubling in price since 2014, and another 20 that have quadrupled in price, it's time that we take action. The reason that the pharmaceutical industry is able to do this is because of the lack of competition from generic drugs, or drugs that are chemically identical to their brand-name counterparts and just as effective, but just cheaper. 

By signing this petition, you can help make a difference by urging lawmakers to increase access to generic drugs in the US marketplace. This will help increase competition in the pharmaceutical industry, and therefore naturally decrease the prices of all drugs while also offering the alternative generic drug that is substantially cheaper.
