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

Tuesday, May 12, 2020
“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. But we also believe that Congress must take action to stop drug corporations from profiteering off the current pandemic as they have many times in the past on everything from diabetes to HIV/AIDS. Lower Drug Prices Now is working with lawmakers at every level to guarantee that COVID medicines and vaccines will be affordable at low or no cost for everyone. If we’re going to beat COVID, lawmakers must take action to end Big Pharma profiteering, must block the drug corporations’ power to set prices and must increase accountability for Big Pharma corporations developing new treatments and vaccines with taxpayer funds.”

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