On Thursday, March 24th, Senator Tammy Baldwin joined AARP for a virtual presentation of a petition, signed by over 126,000 Wisconsin residents, to urge Congress to act against unfair prescription prices. Advocacy Director Lisa Lamkins opened the event by speaking on the importance of lowering prescription costs. Three Wisconsinites were present and told their own stories of how rising prices have impacted them. Senator Baldwin then shared their distress by explaining how she has been affected by the issue.
Baldwin then continued to speak about how she has been working alongside other Congress members to pass legislation that will hold pharmaceutical companies accountable while also making costs easier on Americans.
