Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is a new Progressive Secretary letter.

This letter supports actions by the AARP, Americans for Tax Fairness Action Fund, Public Citizen, and others, asking Congress to support H.R.7296 and H.R.7288.

These bills will prevent price-gouging, prohibit monopolies and ensure that Americans know whether the administration is protecting the public interest in supporting COVID-19 drug development with taxpayer investments.

We will send your letters to your Senators and your Representative
.

Please support H.R.7296, the “Make Medications Affordable by Preventing Pandemic Price gouging Act of 2020” [MMAPPP] and H.R.7288, the “Taxpayer Research and Coronavirus Knowledge Act” [TRACK].

MMAPPP prohibits monopolies on “taxpayer-funded COVID-19 drugs.” It requires the government to mandate affordable pricing for treatments and vaccines. It also requires manufacturers to break down the total production and development costs for COVID-19 drugs, including the percentage derived from federal funds.

TRACK Act creates a database detailing federal support for COVID-19 vaccine research and development. The database will include the full terms of agreements between the government and drug makers, and clinical trial data and patent information.

We deserve to know that the government spends our tax dollars efficiently and effectively. We need to have access to the drugs for which our taxes paid.

Please enthusiastically support H.R.7296 and H.R.7288.

Sincerely,

Kathie Turner, Executive Director
