RELEASE: Texas Democrats on the Passage of the Lower Drug Costs Now Act

Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:

“Too many Texans stay up late at night worrying about rising prescription drug prices. As costs have soared, Texans have had to choose between life-saving medication or putting food on the table. Thanks to House Democrats, this legislation will reduce negotiated drug prices by as much as 55% — this will save lives and save patients an estimated $158 billion over the next few years. The Lower Drug Costs Now Act represents real, meaningful solutions for families across Texas.

“As Trump and Cornyn continue to break promises, Texas Democrats will continue fighting for every Texan’s affordable access to a doctor and care they need, no matter how much they make or where they’re from, period.”
