Women are more likely than their male counterparts to use prescription drugs. It’s clear the current system is unjustifiable and unsustainable for all Americans, but particularly for women who carry more of the burden from the high prices of prescription drugs.

Prescription drug prices increased twice the inflation rate of US economy in 2020, AARP report finds

As drug companies are raking in record profits, seniors are facing impossible choices between affording medications and paying rent or putting food on the table.

Chiquita Brooks-LaSure is a highly-qualified leader with the experience that will make her an outstanding CMS Administrator.

Curbing Drug Costs Should Be a Top Priority for Congress, 1 in 2 Voters Say

Americans pay three times more for drugs as people in other countries, forcing families to choose between lifesaving prescriptions and other necessities like groceries or rent.
H.R. 3 will put an end to the rigged system that allows drug companies to raise the price of existing drugs like insulin year after year, and it will help families save thousands on the medications they need.

As the debate over drug pricing reform heats up in Congress once again, half of voters say passing legislation to lower drug costs should be a top priority for lawmakers, according to new Morning Consult/Politico polling.

Protect Our Care Releases Reports Detailing Why States Should Expand Medicaid — Protect Our Care

Medicaid is vital for ensuring access to quality, affordable care, especially for communities of color, women, children, older adults, LGBTQ+ individuals, and rural Americans. By refusing to expand Medicaid in their states, Republican lawmakers are denying insurance to their most vulnerable populations as we continue to battle the pandemic — it’s almost criminal.

Maine has done the right thing, but we can't stop the fight to #ProtectOurCare as a nation. Medicaid expansion is long overdue in too many states and for too many Americans.

🚨 TODAY at 4PM 🚨 Actress, feminist and social justice humanitarian Ashley Judd will be kicking off our phone bank! Sign up to hear why she is spending the next 24 days working tirelessly to get Biden-Harris elected. Don't worry if you haven't phonebanked before, it is easy and we will have a brief training to get you started. RSVP:
Senator Collins hasn't held an open town hall in over 20 years, so we're hosting one for her. With less than one week to go until the first town hall, she STILL hasn't confirmed that she'll be attending. We need to show up and prove to her that this matters. Join us in Portland or Bangor. RSVP here: www.townhallmaine.org
20 years + and Collins hasn't held an open town hall meeting. She's got the month of August off. Town halls are happening, she's invited, and we need to go too. Portland or Bangor. RSVP Here:
Health care should be something everyone is able to afford and be able is to use
Susan Collins is a r**e culture enabling c**t!
WTF is wrong with you. The man lies, yells and cries on the Senate floor. He is clearly disturbed and you, Collins, are a coward and a traitor. How do you look the women in your life and in your state in the eye. You're a disgusting pig.
What an outstanding presentation today by Sen Collins. Well done. Thank you
You need to. Infirm Judge Kavanaugh, now! Enough of the Democrats lies!
The fact that she hadn’t called for a delay on the vote and a formal investigation speaks volumes about her character.
Would my fellow resisters sign and share my petition to Susan Collins? It will take all of one second. But of course (and frankly, more importantly), keep calling, emailing, donating to the crowdfunding for her opponent and protesting as well!
Kavanaugh says birth control is "Abortion inducing drugs" and you take his word that Roe is settled precedent therefore you can vote for him as Roe is not endanger if being overturned. Unfortunately, settled precedent can be overturned and that's exactly what his joining the court will do. DO NOT VOTE TO CONFIRM KAVANAUGH. If Roe is important to you, you cannot put Kavanaugh on the Supreme court..
Dear Senator Collins. Quality healthcare for all is not a privilege. It is a basic human right. This right is not some outlandish unreachable ideal. It lives in the human heart of compassion, caring and love. We need to take care of one another. Healthcare for each and every one of us, including you and your loved ones, is the most basic scaffolding each of us needs in order to provide that care without the constraints of a Congressional leash. In America, the richest nation on this earth, this issue should not be decided by the current Congress or Supreme Court. Senator Collins - do the right thing. You are a long way from the potato fields now. Remember those hard working people of your youth. If you are a true Mainer, dedicated to the lives of your constituents, protect this most basic of human rights. Maine citizens are paying attention on how they spend their votes in 2018, more than at any time in their voting history. Ann V Quinlan, Portland Maine
