Rep. Craig wrote and passed legislation to cap the cost of insulin to lower prescription drug prices for Minnesotans like Dave and his wife, Jody, a Type 1 diabetic
Burnsville, MN – Minnesota native and life-long Republican Dave Vesledahl praises Rep. Angie Craig’s work to lower prescription drug costs for Minnesotans in a new ad, “Dave.”
Dave’s wife Jody is a Type 1 diabetic. After Rep. Craig’s Affordable Insulin Now Act passed the House, Dave reached out to share his family’s experience watching Jody’s insulin costs increase by more than 200%.
This summer, provisions of Rep. Craig’s Affordable Insulin Now Act were signed into law, capping insulin costs at $35 per month for seniors on Medicare.
“When Dave called me to share his story, I promised him that I would continue to do everything in my power to lower prescription drug costs for Minnesotans,” said Rep. Craig. “Everyone deserves access to high-quality, affordable health care – and I’ll be fighting back against the pharmaceutical companies every step of the way.”
