When Alison visited her mother through the window of her nursing home she said she looked disheveled, and at a couple of points, she was not clothed. Her mother died of COVID-19 in April. #DemandAction from Congress: https://t.co/1GC0Kb75o1 https://t.co/a7x1dEseBz

Minnesota's new insulin affordability program takes effect today. 👍 In response, Big PhRMA is filing a lawsuit. 👎 #StopRxGreed #Insulin4all #mnleg https://t.co/patITdjEaN

Not only are Americans being charged 33% more for a COVID-19 treatment than anyone else in the world, #PhRMA also raised the prices of 245 medications since COVID-19 first surfaced in the U.S. Congress: this shameful price-gouging must stop NOW. https://t.co/IKIZloR8Xy

43% of all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. have occurred in nursing homes. This is not only outrageous, it's a national disgrace. We're calling on Congress to act. NOW. #DemandAction: https://t.co/r4oNmvO8ic

"It’s incumbent upon us to hold our leaders’ feet to the fire making sure these guidelines are enforced, that we hold nursing homes accountable and that our leaders in Congress do more for nursing homes.” https://t.co/p9UC84Crjr @AARPLouisiana @BottcherDenise #DemandAction

Family caregivers are being left in the dark when it comes to how their loved ones are being treated in nursing homes during COVID-19. Tell Congress to hold nursing homes accountable. #DemandAction today: https://t.co/Fypx89Fzlo https://t.co/Ph6EuJ3HVm

With more than 50,000 nursing home residents & workers who have died from COVID-19, it's past time for lawmakers to act. #DemandAction 👉 https://t.co/cXY8CkEWSt https://t.co/AuG4Kkcmh2

“In America, when the technology to facilitate virtual visits is not only abundant, but increasingly affordable, it is nothing short of a scandal that these visits are still not available on a regular basis to many Americans in these facilities." @kennedydana #DemandAction https://t.co/778wMYIDW5

“It is outrageous but not surprising that, even during a pandemic, a drug company would price-gouge Americans." - @NancyLeaMond AARP's entire statement: https://t.co/J1MPizHhMv

This is not how it should work – it’s shameful price-gouging. We will NOT stand by & watch as Big Pharma takes advantage of Americans – during a pandemic – just to boost their own profits. Congress: It’s past time for bipartisan solutions to crack down on drug company greed.

Quoted @CNBC

Gilead's coronavirus treatment remdesivir to cost $3,120 per U.S. patient with private insurance https://t.co/eSTgu90H2X

$3,120? That’s at least 33% MORE than they’re charging the rest of the world. Any #COVID19 vaccine or treatment – ESPECIALLY those developed w/ taxpayer $– must be affordable & accessible. Right now, nothing protects Americans from Rx prices, even during a public health crisis. https://t.co/2R7fUhegCn

Nursing home residents should NOT be evicted to raise facility profits, but that is exactly what is happening across the U.S. according to @nytimes. Residents & their families need protection now. #DemandAction: https://t.co/LCUDgvoaCa https://t.co/Zay8E1vJEi
