Today’s Action: Let’s improve and pass the American Families Plan, Part 2!

Yesterday, we took action to support and strengthen President Biden’s American Families Plan, a $1.8 trillion investment in education, childcare, and paid family leave. To recap, it includes affordable childcare and universal preschool, free community college, strengthening our workforce of teachers and childcare workers, expanding the free school meals program to more low-income families – and much more.

We support it, and, as usual, we also want to make it even better before the final vote! Yesterday, we asked Congress to include a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers, TPS holders, and the 5 million undocumented essential workers who pulled us through this pandemic. And today…

Call or email your Members of Congress and ask them to pass the American Families Plan – AND include a robust plan to lower prescription drug prices, as outlined in the Congressional Progressive Caucus’ THRIVE Act!

Prescription drug costs are twice as high for Americans as folks in other Western industrialized countries, and out-of-pocket expenses increase every year. For example, the asthma drug Flovent costs $152 in the UK and Australia…but a whopping $781 in the United States. Exorbitant drug costs pose a literal life or death problem for millions of Americans, who make the choices between paying for the medicine to stay alive versus covering other basic needs.

Lowering these expenses has strong bipartisan support among voters, which means this is a great agenda to push for and organize around if you live in a red state! And trust us…if this isn’t currently a problem for you, you’ll want to solve it now before it becomes a personal reality.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and demand they include a plan to lower prescription drug prices in the American Families Plan! Refer Democrats to the prescription drug strategy outlined in the Congressional Progressive Caucus’ THRIVE Act.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition urging President Biden to do more to save lives in India, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
