Affordable Health Care

Kurt is working to curb the sky high costs of prescription drugs for hardworking Oregonians and their families

Better coverage. Lower costs.

No one should have to worry about going bankrupt because they cannot afford to pay for the medical care they need. That is why Kurt has worked to defend and strengthen the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), which has increased the number of Americans with health coverage. Another problem: drug companies continue to hike up their prices year after year, even though millions of Americans already can’t afford the medicine they need. Kurt has passed bipartisan legislation to help reduce prescription costs by speeding the approval of lower-cost generic drugs to increase competition. Kurt also supports the Medicare Drug Price Negotiation Act, which would increase the government’s power to lower prescription drug prices from pharmaceutical companies.
