Johnson & Johnson-once one of America’s most trusted brands-wants Californians and all America to pay MORE for its drugs.
In September, J&J contributed close to $6 million dollars to OPPOSE a California ballot measure that would lower drug prices for all California state programs.
The California Drug Price Relief Act will require that the State of California receive the same or better pricing as the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (V.A.) from drug manufacturers for medications that it purchases for state programs. The V.A. generally pays 20% to 24% less for drugs than almost any other government program.
Drugs like Intelence, a lifesaving AIDS drug made by a J&J company that costs over $14,000 per patient per year.
But Johnson & Johnson, along with other greedy pharmaceutical companies, wants to kill voters’ voices and to keep us all paying more for essential medications.
V.A. Pricing: If it’s good enough for America’s veterans, it’s good enough for ALL Americans!
