Quick note on W&M drug pricing markup

With the House Ways and Means Committee expected to advance Speaker Pelosi’s prescription drug price control bill later this afternoon, the American Action Network yesterday launched a new $2.5 million campaign focused on seniors in 22 congressional districts (including TV ads in 7 of those districts) to urge lawmakers to reject Pelosi’s plan.

As this vote approaches, be sure to check out what folks are saying about the new campaign, the latest ad and a statement from American Action Network President Dan Conston on the bill markup here.

“The ad campaign… targets 22 lawmakers including E&C Chair Frank Pallone and Ways and Means Health Subcommittee Chair Lloyd Doggett. Other lawmakers targeted include freshmen who won swing districts like Reps. Lauren Underwood, Andy Kim, Tom Malinowski and Abby Finkenauer.”
“The group is running ads that encourage U.S. Reps. Abby Finkenauer and Cindy Axne to reject the measure in part by describing it as a ‘socialist takeover’ of prescription drug benefits.”
“American Action Network, a GOP-aligned outside group, is hitting DFL Rep. Collin Peterson on Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s drug pricing bill.”
“The rookie Democrats also are being targeted…The American Action Network announced Monday that it will run ads, send mail and make phone calls in Malinowski’s and Kim’s districts”
