No matter where you come from, what you look like, or what’s in your wallet, our health and our lives are all at risk in this pandemic. And Big Pharma’s business practices are further endangering us by price gouging on critical medicines – even on drugs developed with our taxpayer dollars. Congress must take immediate action to stop pandemic profiteering and to ensure affordable and widespread access to vaccines and treatments as soon as they are available. That means Congress must:

  1. Require fair and reasonable prices for all COVID drugs or vaccines developed with taxpayer funds so we can all afford them.
  2. Block drug corporation monopolies that enable Big Pharma profiteering off COVID treatments and vaccines.
  3. Mandate that the Trump Administration–including Secretary Azar, a former Pharma executive–disclose to the public how much taxpayer money is going to drug corporations to create treatments and vaccines.

Statement on the COVID vaccine safety pledge by pharmaceutical corporations

“It is simply remarkable and beyond dangerous that President Trump has so politicized the vaccine process to the point that drug corporations–the least trusted industry in America in America–are now the messengers on vaccine safety. It is the job of elected officials and government regulators, not corporations, to police safety for consumers. Yet, Donald Trump continues to prioritize his own narrow political goals over the needs of the American people,  undermining public health and ignoring his responsibility as President.”

Statement on the US refusing to join the WHO’s global COVID vaccine efforts

“The only way to beat a global pandemic is to get it under control everywhere, and that means we need vaccines that are safe, affordable and accessible to everyone. Instead of listening to public health experts about how to respond to a global pandemic, President Trump has repeatedly put politics ahead of our health, resulting in over 180,000 deaths and an economy in shambles.”

Statement on vaccine trials cut short by political pressure

“Let’s be 100% clear on what is happening here: President Trump is putting his own political agenda and timeline ahead of science, reality and fact so he can create an ‘October Surprise’ and a vaccine before Election Day. Trump is not interested in the people’s health, he is only interested in the health of his re-election campaign. And in politicizing this process, he is putting public health at grave risk.”

REPORT: How Big Pharma Corporations Are Profiteering From The Global COVID Pandemic Without A Vaccine

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Lower Drug Prices Now released a new report, “Pandemic Profiteering: How Pharma Insiders Are Using News of Government Awards and Trial Results to Boost Their Stock Prices and Profiteer Without a Vaccine,” that shows how Big Pharma corporate executives and industry insiders are profiteering from the COVID-19 pandemic. The report highlights how executives and insiders are using news of Operation Warp Speed contracts as well as clinical trial results to drive speculation, inflate stock prices and pocket hundreds of millions without any guarantee of a safe and effective vaccine.”

Statement on Moderna’s $1.5 bn vaccine deal with US

“The Trump administration has abandoned its responsibility to the American people, opting once again to funnel billions of taxpayer dollars to a corporation that has refused to comply with basic disclosure requirements and has no proven track record. At a time when the public is desperate for a safe and successful vaccine, this administration continues to undermine the American people’s trust, handing over more of our tax dollars to corporations focused on inflating profits, not public health.”

Statement on Senate introduction of the MMAPPP Act

This week U.S. Senators Tina Smith (D-Minn.) and Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) introduced legislation to ensure that any taxpayer-funded vaccine or treatment for coronavirus (COVID-19) proven to be safe and effective will be accessible, affordable, and available to all individuals.

Release: HHS Feels Heat on Vaccine Development Conflicts of Interest

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Public Citizen and Lower Drug Prices Now today filed two additional ethics complaints [here and here] regarding COVID-19 vaccine czar Dr. Moncef Slaoui, following an initial complaint to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of the Inspector General (OIG) in May that resulted in no action.

Statement on Moderna’s 100% taxpayer funded vaccine

“Moderna just admitted that its covid vaccine is 100% taxpayer-funded, only a week after comfortably stating before Congress that it plans to make a profit on a vaccine the American people have already paid nearly a billion dollars to develop. Moderna executives and insiders have already made $200 million off of the stock gains resulting from announcements of vaccine trials and government awards.”

Statement on $2 billion in tax dollars granted to Sanofi and GSK

The Trump Administration’s Operation Warp Speed has just awarded $2.1 billion — a record amount of taxpayer money — to Sanofi and GSK, pharmaceutical companies working to develop a coronavirus vaccine. The head of Operation Warp Speed, Moncef Slaoui, holds $10 million of shares in GSK. Lower Drug Prices Now has filed an ethics complaint for how the Trump Administration has used a loophole to exempt Slaoui from disclosure rules.

Statement on Moderna’s extra $472 million from taxpayers

On Sunday, Reuters reported that Operation Warp Speed candidate Moderna received an additional $472 million in funding from BARDA to develop its potential COVID vaccine. Following the announcement, Moderna saw shares increase 11.3% in premarket trading on Monday. US taxpayers total funding for the experimental vaccine of Moderna is now $955 million.

Statement on Pfizer receiving $2 billion from taxpayers for COVID vaccine

Statement from Margarida Jorge, campaign director for Lower Drug Prices Now, on news that U.S. will pay $2 billion for Pfizer/BioNTech coronavirus vaccine doses.

Statement on drug executive testimony to House Energy & Commerce Committee

“Drug corporations are masterful at marketing. They recognize the current race for a COVID vaccine as a fantastic opportunity for free PR to redeem some of their tarnished brands. We expect in today’s subcommittee hearing that officials from AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson, Merck, Moderna and Pfizer will show up to position their companies as good-faith philanthropists wanting to save the day with a COVID vaccine. But the public knows there’s only one thing that motivates Big Pharma: more profits.”

Background Memo: Will COVID 19 Vaccines & Medicines Serve Profits or People?

Ahead of tomorrow’s House E&C Oversight subcommittee hearing Lower Drug Prices Now produced this memo with background on Operation Warp Speed, and the five drug corporations leading testifying at tomorrow’s hearing.

Statement on Inspector General’s ruling that Vaccine Czar Moncef Slaoui can keep investing in pharma stocks 

“The IG’s decision is extremely disappointing. Mr. Slaoui’s position is core to the government’s vaccine development efforts, and he should be just as accountable to the American people as any other government official. This administration has demonstrated a clear disregard for ethics and a willingness to funnel billions of taxpayer dollars to their Pharma corporate cronies without transparency or accountability.”

Statement on Senate Democrats seeking $25bn for COVID19 vaccine

“Senate Democrats are absolutely right: Americans need affordable COVID vaccines and treatments. And we’re glad that they’re pushing to use the government’s purchasing power to negotiate a ‘fair price’ for patients. But as long as drug corporations retain monopoly power to set and keep prices high, taxpayers will continue to foot the bill behind the scenes even if patients aren’t paying at the point of service.”

Statement on Operation Warp Speed giving $1.6 billion to Novavax

 “Operation Warp Speed continues gambling away billions in taxpayer dollars. The Trump Administration, which is filled with former Pharma execs and lobbyists, just handed over another $1.6 billion to Novavax, a drug corporation that’s never successfully brought a product to market.”

Statement on Moderna executives selling stock since pursuing COVID vaccine

“This news serves as a reminder that as the White House continues to hand over billions in taxpayer dollars for a coronavirus vaccine without a guarantee of affordability, Big Pharma continues to focus on its profits not patients,” said “American taxpayers are co-owners of this potential vaccine, but it’s only Moderna that’s reaping the profits — we foot the bill while they line their pockets.”

Statement on Gilead charging $3,120 for COVID treatment Remdesivir

“It’s become clear that the only way we’re going to get COVID under control is through a safe, affordable and accessible vaccine. Yet, despite massive taxpayer investments into the development of remdesivir, and guarantees by the company that it will make the drug affordable, Gilead has decided to once again gouge patients.”

The Trump team gives these 5 Big Pharma price gougers big taxpayer money for COVID-19 vaccines

Front Page Live – 6/26/20

The COVID pandemic reminds us that we are all human, we can all get sick, and sometimes we all need prescription medications to feel better and take care of our families.

But for Big Pharma and all their friends in the Trump Administration, today’s crisis is just another chance to price gouge patients trying to stay healthy.

At Lower Drug Prices Now, we have uncovered the five big drug corporations addicted to price gouging and poised to profit off future COVID vaccines. While the Trump Administration is funneling them billions for research through secret contracts and special tax breaks, there is a growing army of people demanding that we hold Big Pharma accountable for inflating their profits at the expense of our health.

Margarida Jorge, national campaign director for Lower Drug Prices Now, applauded the new bills:

“Congress must block Big Pharma’s monopoly control to set prices for medicines developed with taxpayer dollars, especially during a pandemic that’s taken the lives of over 120,000 Americans to date. The time to end Big Pharma business as usual and pass long overdue reforms that increase transparency, accountability and affordability for patients is now.”

Statement from Margarida Jorge, campaign director for Lower Drug Prices Now, on the Trump administration’s pledge to make future covid-19 vaccine free for “vulnerable” Americans:

“A commitment to affordability that can’t be made on the record is just another hollow promise to the American people. Like so many things with this administration, this pledge is nothing more than empty rhetoric.”

Leading Drug Pricing and Watchdog Organizations Demand Information from Operation Warp Speed Finalists on COVID Vaccine Pricing

Washington, D.C. – Today, Lower Drug Prices Now joined nonpartisan ethics watchdog groups American Oversight and Accountable.US in filing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for information on the pricing, cost and affordability of COVID-19 vaccines or treatment created by AstraZeneca, Merck and Pfizer.

Statement from Margarida Jorge, campaign director for Lower Drug Prices Now, on the news that 26 Big Pharma companies were sued for price fixing by Attorneys General in 46 states:

“At the same time we’re handing billions in taxpayer dollars over to Big Pharma companies for COVID treatments and vaccines, no strings attached, they’re continuing with the same business-as-usual approach of gouging patients. How many times do the same companies have to prove that they can’t be trusted before we lawmakers take action to end Pharma companies’ monopoly control to charge patients any price they want?”

Statement from Margarida Jorge, campaign director for Lower Drug Prices Now, on Dr. Anothony Fauci’s comments about not wanting to set price limits for COVID vaccines

“For decades, these drug corporations have held the healthcare of billions of people hostage, lining their pockets to become the most profitable industry in the nation,” said Margarida Jorge, national campaign director for Lower Drug Prices Now. “Apparently Dr. Fauci, a senior public health official responsible for our nation’s COVID response, believes that’s okay. Big Pharma should not be the ones deciding the cost of a vaccine, full stop.”

Statement from Margarida Jorge, campaign director for Lower Drug Prices Now, on the news that AstraZeneca approached Gilead about a potential merger:

“Mergers and consolidation in the pharmaceutical industry is bad news for patients, and could prove even more harmful as demand for affordable COVID treatments and vaccines is bound to increase. Drug corporations already have monopoly control to charge patients inflated prices for prescription drugs in the past few years. Corporations like AstraZeneca and Gilead have historically used their monopoly power to price-gouge patents for necessary medicines, charging sometimes tens of thousands of dollars for a single treatment. “

Coronavirus Treatments and Vaccines Will Only Work if They Are Affordable | Opinion

Newsweek – 6/2/20

OPED by Cong. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) and Cong. Francis Rooney (R-FL)

Over the past decade, almost every new medication brought to market was paid for by a hefty investment from taxpayer dollars. Each of these drugs was developed in the interest of a greater public good: to alleviate pain, improve health and save lives. However, accountability for public funding has not prevented pharmaceutical corporations from hiking up prices on new and existing drugs for patients, increasing the cost of prescription drugs up to 10 percent every year.

Vaccine Czar Should Be Subject to Conflict of Interest Code, Groups Say in Ethics Complaint

WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Donald Trump’s vaccine czar – who has extensive ties to the pharmaceutical industry – should be subject to conflict of interest and disclosure rules, Public Citizen and Lower Drug Prices Now said in a complaint filed today.

Statement from Margarida Jorge, campaign director for Lower Drug Prices Now, on the news that the Vice President’s Chief of Staff, Marc Short, owns stock in companies receiving taxpayer funding for COVID vaccines:

“At this point, we have to assume that conflicts of interest are a prerequisite to working in the Trump administration,” said Margarida Jorge, national campaign director for Lower Drug Prices Now. “The Vice President’s Chief of Staff holds stock in the very prescription drug corporations receiving taxpayer funding for coronavirus treatments.”

National Advocates & Investors Call Out Merck & Co Ahead of Annual Shareholder Meeting: “This Pandemic Is No Time For Business As Usual”

WASHINGTON – Today, ahead of Merck & Co’s shareholder meeting, Lower Drug Prices Now joined with Merck shareholders, including Oxfam and the Oregon State Treasurer, to issue statements challenging the drug corporation’s record of price gouging and tax avoidance. Merck’s reliance on short-term schemes, such as using monopoly power to hike drug prices is particularly troubling since Merck is now developing a COVID vaccine with direct support from US taxpayers.

Statement from Margarida Jorge, Campaign Director, Lower Drug Prices Now, on the news that the U.S. paid AstraZeneca $1.2 billion for a billion doses of its experimental COVID vaccine:

“It’s Groundhog Day. Another day, another drug corporation with a history of price gouging gets a massive gift of taxpayer dollars, no strings attached. Every taxpayer should be asking the Trump Administration why we are giving AstraZeneca over $1 billion for drugs that were developed with our tax dollars.”

Reps. Gwen Moore, Donna Edwards Joined Wisconsin Leaders to Demand Affordable COVID Treatments & Vaccines

Wednesday, May 20, 2020

Washington – Today, the Lower Drug Prices Now coalition hosted a tele-town hall featuring Wisconsin Representative Gwen Moore, former Representative Donna Edwards, Stephanie Bloomingdale, President of the Wisconsin AFL-CIO, and Gary Mitchell, President of the Wisconsin Alliance of Retired Americans to demand affordable COVID drugs and accountability for drug corporations that are profiteering off of the coronavirus pandemic.

Statement from Margarida Jorge, Campaign Director, Lower Drug Prices Now, on news from the World Health Assembly on a Public Good Vaccine:

“Today’s worldwide pandemic should remind us all that we are linked in an international economy where we may all be impacted by developments in nations thousands of miles away. The United States has had a long legacy of global leadership in many areas, but President Trump’s current posture on coronavirus medicines has so far been disappointing, both at home and abroad.”


“This White House seems to have an open spigot of taxpayer dollars going to drug corporations that profiteer off of pandemics. They’re gearing up to give the largest award in history to a corporate executive who quintupled the price of naloxone in the middle of the opioid epidemic. Yet again, the administration is handing over taxpayer dollars away to a drug corporation with no strings attached and no guarantee that we’ll get affordable access to the medicines developed with our money. Congress must step in and take action now.”

Statement from Margarida Jorge, Campaign Director, Lower Drug Prices Now, on the news that former GlaxoSmithKline executive Moncef Slaoui was named to head the White House’s “Operation Warp Speed”:

“It should surprise absolutely no one that this White House has put a senior pharma executive in charge of coordinating COVID vaccines and treatments. This is deeply concerning. Once again, the Trump administration has put the fox in charge of the hen house.”

Statement by Margarida Jorge on the release of the new COVID relief bill – the HEROES Act

“This package focuses on the most immediate relief and recovery needs. We hope President Trump and Senate Leader McConnell will follow Speaker Pelosi’s lead and take swift action to help millions who desperately need it.”

WASHINGTON — Today, the Lower Drug Prices Now coalition co-hosted a press call following Eli Lilly’s shareholder meeting and in advance of Gilead’s to demand that COVID treatments developed with taxpayer dollars be affordable and accessible to all. 

Statement from Margarida Jorge, Campaign Director, Lower Drug Prices Now, on the news that early trials of Gilead’s Remdesivir have shown positive results

“This is great news. But based on Gilead’s record, we’re deeply concerned that they’ll use their monopoly control to price-gouge patients and make this potentially life-saving treatment unaffordable and inaccessible. Remdesivir was developed using tens of millions of taxpayer dollars, and should be made available at no additional cost.

Seniors, National Leaders Hold Town Hall to Demand Affordable COVID Drugs

Washington – Today, the Lower Drug Prices Now coalition co-hosted a telephone town hall to demand access to affordable COVID drugs for seniors and call on Big Pharma not to profiteer off of the coronavirus pandemic.

Leaders Urge Congress To Take Action In Next Relief Bill To Ensure Drug Companies Can’t Exploit This Crisis

Former Senator Tom Harkin joined Lower Drug Prices Now, local groups and Iowans directly impacted by COVID-19, for a tele-town hall Tuesday at 6:00pm CT to urge Congress to take action to prevent pandemic profiteering by drug companies charged with developing COVID treatments and vaccines.

Margarida Jorge, national campaign director for Lower Drug Prices Now, statement on news that the Trump re-election effort received a $50,000 campaign contribution from a maker of hydroxychloroquine in January, before the Trump Administration started pushing the untested drug:

“What a surprise. It appears that Donald Trump’s obsession with pushing an untested, and potentially deadly drug, has more to do with his political health than the country’s health. This is exactly how the system works. Big Pharma uses campaign contributions and their armies of lobbyists to buy influence in Washington to advance their agenda and put their profits over our health. It is shameful and scandalous. And in this case, it may be deadly.”

This morning Johnson & Johnson issued a statement reiterating their intent to develop a coronavirus vaccine “on a not-for-profit basis.”

“Johnson & Johnson’s promise to provide a future coronavirus vaccine on a ‘not-for-profit basis’ rings hollow. J&J has a record of promising not-for-profit prices on life-saving drugs, and then gouging patients for the same medicines later on. That’s why we know we can’t trust Johnson & Johnson not to profiteer on this one.”

Letter to Presidential Candidates

Lower Drug Prices Now shared recommendations with the Presidential candidates on how to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and ensure affordable treatments and vaccines for all.

New reporting from the NY Times and Sludge revealed that Big Pharma and the Trump administration are working together to profit off of the coronavirus crisis.

“The explosive report in the New York Times showing that President Trump has financial ties to the company making a version of the experimental drug he is pushing raises serious ethical, moral and legal questions that need to be immediately investigated by Congress. Is Trump personally profiting from this crisis? Is he helping his buddies in the pharmaceutical industry profiteer from the pandemic? Given the all too cozy relationship that his administration has with Big Pharma, these questions need to be thoroughly investigated.”

Tell Congress:
We need affordable COVID drugs and to stop pandemic profiteering

Tell Congress:

Despite tremendous Congressional action in the past three weeks, the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic continues to take a huge toll on our families, our front-line workers and on the economy.

It’s clear Congress must take more action to ensure we can contain the disease, protect the workers we depend on for so many basic necessities, and put in place health care resources we need to help millions of people get or stay healthy.

Congress has already invested more than $3.7 billion in research to develop COVID drugs and vaccines. But so far, the Trump Administration has refused to guarantee that prescription drug corporations will make those medicines affordable. In fact, Big Pharma companies are already trying to profiteer off monopoly prices just as we’ve seen them do with insulin, Epi-Pens and many other prescription drugs.

It’s up to Congress to make sure our taxpayer dollars get us vaccines and treatments that we can all afford by stopping the drug corporations from profiteering off of today’s pandemic.

No matter where you come from, what you look like or what’s in your wallet, we could all get sick from the current pandemic. We all need affordable medicine to get healthy and to take care of our families.

The United States has a long legacy of effectively battling epidemics like measles, polio and rubella to save millions of lives. But vaccines and medicines can’t work if we can’t afford them because drug monopolies demand sky-high prices.

It’s time to get ahead of the curve. A long term plan to stop COVID-19 in its tracks requires that taxpayer funded treatments and vaccines we need to eradicate the disease will be available and affordable to all. Congress must take action now to stop pandemic profiteering, to ensure affordable and widespread access to vaccines and treatments as soon as they are available.

Thank You for standing with us to put people before Pharma Profits!
