AAN Launches $3 Million Campaign To Support Trump Admin’s Proposed Prescription Drug Rebate Rule

Today, the American Action Network launched a $3 million advertising campaign encouraging Congress to support President Trump’s proposed Drug Rebate Rule — the Administration’s signature proposal to reduce drug prices. The radio, mail and digital campaign will reach the constituents of 47 Members of Congress and 11 U.S. Senators, asking them to ensure the Administration’s prescription drug rebate rule is finalized.

A complete list of districts and states that will be part of the campaign is available here.

“Achieved through market-based competition, the rebate rule would provide a concrete benefit to America’s seniors, reducing their prescription drug prices on day one,” said AAN President Dan Conston“Of all the ideas being debated to reduce drug pricing, the rebate rule is the only proposal that will mean real, tangible prescription drug savings for seniors on January 1st, 2020. We urge legislators to fight to ensure the Administration’s rebate rule is adopted.”

An example of the radio ad is available here.

As liberals in Congress push big government price controls, the Trump Administration’s proposed prescription rebate rule would ensure that patients receive the full benefit of prescription drug rebates negotiated in Medicare Part D. The proposed rebate rule would turn away from the failed ideas of increased government and restricted access to medicines, instead relying on real competition to immediately lower prescription drug costs for seniors.

The American Action Network is a 501(c)(4) ‘action tank’ that creates, encourages and promotes center-right policies based on the principles of freedom, limited government, American exceptionalism, and strong national security. The American Action Network’s primary goal is to put our center-right ideas into action by engaging the hearts and minds of the American people and spurring them into action to advance our center-right policy agenda.
