KHN: The Public Backs Medicare Rx Price Negotiation Even After Hearing Both Sides’ Views - Retired Americans

This is a reminder that Americans WANT Medicare to negotiate lower drug prices.

Wealthy pharmaceutical corporations don't want that.

As Congress debates cutting prescription drug costs, a poll released Tuesday found the vast majority of adults — regardless of their political party or age — support letting the federal government negotiate drug prices for Medicare beneficiaries and those in private health insurance plans. The a...

Drugmakers won't stop these astronomical price increases without legislative action.

That's why Congress needs to include Medicare drug price negotiation in #BuildBackBetter and pass it ASAP.

Indocin shows how Martin-Shkreli-type price increases never disappeared.

Legislative action from Congress is the only thing that will stop them.

Social Security Benefits Will Increase by Almost 6 Percent in 2022 - Retired Americans

Retirees can expect an increase of almost 6 percent for their Social Security next year.

But we can do even better by expanding Social Security and using CPI-E to calculate COLAs.

Social Security beneficiaries, disabled veterans and federal retirees will see their earned benefits increase by 5.9% in January, marking the largest increase in almost four decades. The cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) will amount to an additional $92 a month for the average retired worker. “The ...

Workers don't deserve a two-tier or three-tier system. They deserve good pay, livable wages, safe working conditions, and the ability to join in union to fight for these things. #Striketober

“At Kellogg and Kaiser Permanente, management is insisting on a two-tier pay system. At John Deere, management is even demanding a three-tier system. Workers are saying NO WAY to a tier system because it hurts future workers AND divides workers https://t.co/5panmLAkuj”

Drug Corporations Kick Lobbying into High Gear to Stop Medicare Drug Price Negotiation - Retired Americans

Wealthy pharmaceutical corporations are spending millions to fleece the public about Medicare drug price negotiation.

But polling shows that Americans see through their lies. #LetMedicareNegotiate

Millions of dollars in advertising, funded by pharmaceutical corporations and business organizations, are being spent to block President Biden’s Build Back Better plan, and the provision allowing Medicare to negotiate lower drug prices and expand benefits is a focus of many of those ads.

Alliance Members Speak Out for Drug Price Negotiation and Expanded Medicare Benefits - Retired Americans

Last week, Alliance members spoke out for drug price negotiation and talked about drugmakers' scare tactics.

News flash for Big Pharma: the public wants Medicare to negotiate lower drug prices and add dental, vision, and hearing benefits.

On Wednesday, October 6, a group of health care advocates including the Florida Alliance (FLARA), medical professionals, and faith leaders held a virtual event urging Rep. Stephanie Murphy (FL), another House Democrat who has opposed drug price negotiation, to support lowering prescription drug pric...

This is the story you are looking for, how our local RUFFians demonstrated at Rep. Buddy's office in Savannah GA.
Hey you Guys won't allow diversity of thought! Apparently.
Your organization is absolutely spreading false info. You are just a mouthpiece for Corrupt Politicians looking for more votes to then place heavy Tax Burdens on The American Citizens who choose to "EARN" a living. At 1 time I was a Democrat but in 1995 the truth did set me free.
DUMP AND JAIL CORRUPT REPUBLICONS EVERYWHERE, FOREVER. CROOKED trump AND republicons ARE LOW LIFE GRIFTERS.
With 4 million seniors working for $7.25 an hour, and 40 million American workers over all, it's time for all of us to "fight for $15".
Born in 1960? Your Social Security Retirement or Disability Benefits Could Take a Hit Why the pandemic is threatening to reduce future payments for today's 60-year-olds
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the Town of Burlington,MA for their continued support in my retirement from their Fire Department. Joe Doran SR.
Sorry Brothers & Sisters; I was rambling around this crazy Universe and not paying attention. I would never give up my support for what you guys do everyday for the Membership. I appreciate it and if I wasn't such a knuckle head, I'd devote more time to the effort. Lemmeno, Joe Doran
You all recently e-mailed me a survey where you erroneously stated that President Trump caused a delay in mail delivery by removing high speed sorting machines. You have your facts incorrect. The machines that were removed from some Postal Processing Plants were duplicate machines that were NOT BEING USED due to a decrease in letter mail and were simply taking up space. It was determined that the space that they were taking up could better be utilized to hold the increase number of packages because they were running out of space to hold the packages until they were ship out to their destination Post Offices. These machines can easily be returned if the circumstances change. The media and people like you are what causes panic in our society. You need to get your facts straight before publishing them. Do you honestly believe that there are people in our society that do not work for the Post Office? Do you honestly believe that people who do work at the Post Offices don't know the truth behind what really happened over those machines and that they would stay quiet while you run down the Administration and the Postal Service. Granted, Mr DeJoy was not the best choice for a Post Master General, and hopefully that will soon be resolved, and resolved by hiring someone within the Postal Service that actually knows how the Postal system really works, and what is needed to help fix the problems faced by the Postal workers today? Get real - if you want people to support you - don't lie to us, because there is always going to be someone out there that knows the truth and knows you are lying.
JAIL GANGSTER trump and cronies. AMERICANS PEOPLE HAVE FIRED GANGSTER trump AND YOUR CRIME FAMILY FOR ALL YOUR CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES. GOOD RIDDANCE FOR ALL THE DAMAGE YOU AND REPUBLICONS HAVE DONE.
250,000 DEAD OF COVID, MILLIONS SICK. DUMP CROOKED trump AND republicons FOR LYING ABOUT CORONA PANDEMIC. DUMP HI**ER tRUMP AND CRONIES. DEFEAT CRIMINAL AND CORRUPT REPUBLICONS FOREVER. FIX CLIMATE CHANGE, NOT ELECTIONS. FIX PANDEMICS AND ECONOMY, NOT ELECTIONS.
DEMOCRATS have regularly lied about Republicans wanting to do away with Social Security, but they never have. WE DO HAVE THE RECORD OF JOE BIDEN WHO HAS ADVOCATED FOR CUTTING SOCIAL SECURITY FOR 40 YEARS. HE DOES HAVE A TRACK RECORD AND HE AGAIN SAID IT ON "THE STUMP" SUNDAY, 10/25/20.
