On the campaign trail, Democrats are most likely to boast about a new policy aimed at lowering the cost of prescription drugs.
Of all the elements in the bill, Rep. Andy Kim (D-N.J.) plans to highlight the $2,000 cap on out-of-pocket costs for prescription drugs for seniors, which he helped to write.
“I heard horrible stories from constituents who told me they paid over $500 a month for medicine. With this provision, no senior in America will need to pay over $166 a month,” Kim told The Early. “That’s real help.”
Lowering prescription drug costs has been a top campaign issue for Democrats for decades, but they never delivered. That didn’t stop several in the party from running on it again earlier this year, hoping this time would be different.
