 Magaziner Applauds Senate Healthcare and Clean Energy Package

WARWICK, RI- Today General Treasurer and congressional candidate released the following statement regarding the healthcare and clean energy package reached by Senate Democrats:

 

“This proposal lowers inflation by empowering Medicare to negotiate drug prices, capping out-of-pocket costs, extending the cost-saving measure of the Affordable Care Act and lowering energy costs by helping our country finally transition away from foreign fossil fuels,” said General Treasurer and congressional candidate Seth Magaziner. “As I speak to voters, these are the issues front of mind for them–  lowering the cost of prescription drugs, protecting the right to affordable, quality healthcare, and investing in clean energy programs that can make the Ocean State a national leader, creating good jobs and help people save money.”

 

The agreement reached between Senate Democrats, House Leadership, and the White House protects Affordable Care Act subsidies, allows Medicare to negotiate drug prices for the first time, cap out-of-pocket costs at $2,000 for drugs, invests billions into climate change programs, ensures big corporations and Wall Street managers pay their fair share of taxes and reduces the federal deficit.
