Siena Claure started this petition to The Federal Government

Prescribed inhalers currently cost around $300-400. They are a necessity to people with asthma, their life is at risk without them. 250,000 people die from asthma each year! If we lower the price of an inhaler, it will most likely reduce the death rates. Lowering the prices will help families that are in poverty, and keep their loved ones safe and healthy. Although inhalers are expensive because of the medications they contain, with the rising numbers of asthma cases due to climate change, if you lower the prices, it can make it more accessible to people so more can afford it without financially threatening themselves. Some people don't have enough money to buy an inhaler, because of life necessities such as food, water, and shelter. By taking two seconds to sign this petition, you could save lives! Adults with asthma are more at risk for Covid-19. Because of that, there will most likely be even more deaths. Air pollution also takes a part in this. Bad air quality leads to clogged lungs. Bad air quality takes a part in asthma, but it does not control it. Knowing you can make a change with just a signature, share, or a donation, might as well do it!
