Letter Supporting the Fair Accountability, and Innovative and Research Drug Pricing Act of 2016

On behalf of the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare’s millions of members and supporters, I write to endorse the Fair Accountability, and Innovative and Research Drug Pricing Act of 2016, which would require drug manufacturers to be more transparent about their justification for increases in drug prices over 10 percent. Manufacturers would be required, among other things, to report their spending on a drug’s research and development as well as their profits on a drug each year since its approval.

Seniors Applaud New Legislation to Strengthen Social Security

The National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare is proud to support the “Strengthening Social Security Act of 2016,” introduced today by Representative Linda Sanchez (D-CA). She was joined today by Representatives Mike Honda (D-CA), Mark Pocan (D-WI) and Social Security advocates at a Capitol Hill news conference describing this important legislation.

Seniors Applaud Clinton Proposal to End Prescription Drug Price Gouging

The National Committee’s members and supporters applaud Hillary Clinton’s plan to create a consumer response team to identify and intervene in cases where drug manufacturers are hiking costs without justification. For too long America’s drug industry has been allowed to raise prices excessively for treatments that have been available for years. The recent EpiPen 400% price hike is just the latest example of companies putting profits ahead of patients.  The sky-rocketing cost of prescription drugs is hurting average Americans, our health system and the federal budget.  

Letter Supporting Strengthening Social Security Act of 2016

On behalf of the millions of members and supporters of the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare, I write to endorse your legislation entitled the "Strengthening Social Security Act of 2016."

These immigrants come to our country to work.  They contribute to the economic health of our nation.  They also make substantial contributions to Social Security through the payroll tax, even though neither they nor their families are eligible to receive benefits.  The National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare believes that bringing undocumented workers into our national family would be beneficial for the country and good for Social Security as well.

What Are the Social Security & Medicare Questions You'd Ask Candidates in Monday’s Debate?

Presidential Candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump meet in their widely-anticipated and already heavily-analyzed first debate on Monday. NBC’s Lester Holt will moderate. We’ve already thrown in our two cents on why we believe Social Security and Medicare should be included in this debate (and it’s not because, as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce claims, benefits need to be cut to reduce the deficit).
