Let's Work to Fight Rx Greed

Posted on 01/24/20

Iowans speak about the impact of the rising costs of prescription medication.


Have you or someone you know been affected by the rising costs of prescription drugs?

Let your elected leaders know why lowering prescription drug prices matters to you. Share your story and remind them why Americans need protection from rising medicine costs. Government is broken while drug companies are making billions in profits off seniors and hard-working Americans.

Congress needs to work together to pass legislation to lower prescription drug prices now. Together with the power of AARP’s advocates, your voice will ensure our leaders act to protect all Americans from these rising costs.

Take the next step in this fight and speak out! Add your voice to those of thousands of Iowans who have shared their story with AARP Iowa.

Wondering how we will share your story?

When you share your story, you’ll remind our elected leaders that Americans are making impossible choices and going to extraordinary lengths just to get the prescriptions they need. See how increased prices of medication affect everyday Iowans.
