GREEDY DRUG COMPANIES ARE SCARED THAT PROP 61 WILL SET A NATIONAL PRECEDENT FOR RX PRICING!
They’re going to spend over $100 million to try to get Californians to vote against their interest.
If you have any doubt as to the effect of Proposition 61,
look no further than the drug industry’s own trade publication.
IS THE PRICE OF YOUR MEDS MAKING YOU SICK?
Fight Back Against The Drug Companies’ Price-Gouging
by voting for Proposition 61, the California Drug Price Relief Act of 2016
Greedy drug companies are overcharging California taxpayers and consumers by billions of dollars each year for life-saving medicines, putting profits over people.
You’ve no doubt seen the headlines — drug prices skyrocketing for no apparent reason. And you or a loved one have probably experienced personally the sticker-shock of co-pays for long-time drugs spiking literally overnight.
Now, you have a way to fight back against the unconscionable profiteering of the drug companies. Proposition 61, the California Drug Price Relief Act, is a 2016 ballot initiative that will require the State of California to pay no more for prescription drugs than is paid for the same medication by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, which negotiates drug prices with the pharmaceutical companies — and pays 20-24% less on average for drugs than other government agencies, and 40% less than even Medicare.
Prop. 61 would utilize California’s bulk-purchasing power to secure lower drug prices for prescription drugs, saving taxpayers and consumers billions of dollars. And it will be an important blow against the monopoly pricing power and profit-driven arrogance of the pharmaceutical industry.
