“One of my greatest priorities is to reduce the price of prescription drugs...That is why I have directed my administration to make fixing the injustice of high drug prices one of our top priorities for the year. And prices will come down substantially. Watch."

"Patients for Affordable Drugs brings a much-needed voice and perspective to the debate about lowering the cost of prescription drugs. People across the country are worried about high drug prices, and many are struggling because they can’t afford their medications. We look forward to working with P4AD to solve this critical issue."
