Big Pharma has a stealthy plan to keep medicine prices outrageously high by rigging the rules in the revised NAFTA deal.
That’s right, the NAFTA 2.0 text that Donald Trump signed late last year would lock in outrageously high U.S. medicine prices. And export our bad policies to Mexico and Canada to raise drug prices there.
Sign the petition to Congress insisting that the Big Pharma giveaways are eliminated from the revised NAFTA deal.
Trump pledged to bring down medicine costs — but his renegotiated NAFTA proposal guarantees new monopoly rights for big pharmaceutical companies, so they can avoid generic competition and keep U.S. drug prices high.
Whatever you think about NAFTA 2.0, clearly special protections for greedy pharmaceutical firms should not be part of it.
There is growing momentum to tackle the problem of soaring drug costs. We simply can’t allow the NAFTA 2.0 deal to tie Congress’ hands, derailing the reforms needed to bring down drug prices.
Demand that Congress makes Trump remove the Big Pharma giveaways before NAFTA 2.0 is sent to Congress.
Today, one in five Americans cannot afford the medicines that they are prescribed. Think about that: 20 percent of our fellow Americans face unnecessary suffering and premature death because they cannot afford the medicine they need.
Recently more than 70 consumer, faith, labor and other public interest groups representing tens of millions of people wrote Congress demanding the Big Pharma protections be eliminated from NAFTA 2.0.
The NAFTA 2.0 terms that would keep medicine prices high have to go!
