On the campaign trail, Democrats are likely to tout a new policy aimed at lowering the cost of prescription drugs.
Of all the elements of the bill, Rep. Andy Kim (DN.J.) plans to highlight the $2,000 cap on out-of-pocket costs for prescription drugs for seniors, which he helped write.
“I heard horror stories from constituents who told me they were paying more than $500 a month for medicine. With this provision, no senior in America will have to pay more than $166 a month,” Kim told The Early . “This is a real help.”
Lowering prescription drug costs has been a major campaign issue for Democrats for decades, but they never followed through. That didn’t stop several party members from running again earlier this year, hoping this time would be different.
