Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “Biden pledges lower insulin costs under ‘Build Back Better’”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

President Biden said Monday that people who have diabetes would no longer have to ration insulin and Americans would see lower prices at the pharmacy counter under his social welfare legislation.

In a bid to build momentum for the multitrillion-dollar bill that passed the House but faces a rewrite in the Senate, Mr. Biden said the millions of Americans who need insulin to live will pay no more than $35 per month out-of-pocket under any kind of health plan.

He also said people without insurance can get covered through expanded federal subsidies for Obamacare under his bill.

He touted the provisions after recounting tales of people rationing insulin or sharing their medicine with other diabetics.

“Shame on us as a nation, we can’t do better than this,” Mr. Biden said. “It’s enough. Enough. Nobody has held the manufacturers accountable until now.”
