Luján Statement On Lowering Prescription Drug Costs For American Families


Washington, D.C. – U.S. House Assistant Speaker Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) issued the following statement on the House passage of the Elijah E. Cummings Lower Drug Costs Now Act:

“I often hear from families that the cost of prescription drugs is a burden threatening their economic stability and their health. That is unacceptable. New Mexico families shouldn’t have to choose between making ends meet and affording their prescriptions

“I am deeply proud that the House passed the Elijah E. Cummings Lower Drug Costs Now Act to relieve the cost families face because of out-of-control drug prices. Lowering health care costs has been a major priority for the U.S. House of Representatives and me. By passing this legislation, we are delivering on our commitment to the American people that health care is a right for all.”
