- Keep prescription drugs affordable by fighting against the return of the Part D “donut hole” that cost seniors thousands of dollars out of pocket
- Protect Social Security against risky schemes to entrust Wall Street with your hard-earned benefits
- Save up to hundreds of billions in taxpayer dollars by allowing Medicare to use its buying power to negotiate lower prices from drug companies, just like the Veterans Administration already does"
