THIS NOVEMBER, THE FIGHT FOR FAIR DRUG PRICING COMES TO SAN FRANCISCO
Prescription drug costs are skyrocketing, and San Francisco taxpayers are paying the price.
Over $23 Million of taxpayer money is spent on prescriptions for city-run medical programs in San Francisco. These drugs are for our neighbors who need it most -- seniors, working families, women, HIV/AIDS patients and high-risk individuals throughout the city.
Prop D will allow San Francisco to have more control over healthcare policy and drug prices. It won't cost San Francisco a dime, but the potential savings are huge. Drug prices are so expensive that even if we lower them by a fraction, taxpayers could save millions.
Prop D has unanimous support from the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, the San Francisco Democratic Party, the Alice B. Toklas LGBT Democratic Club and a broad coalition of progressive advocacy and neighborhood organizations. San Francisco has a long history of taking on issues that have been ignored at the federal and state level, particularly on healthcare policy. When San Francisco acts, the country follows.
