GARDEN GROVE, CA – Today Congresswoman Michelle Steel voted against a bipartisan bill to cap insulin prices at $35 per month for consumers with private insurance or Medicare.
The price of insulin has been skyrocketing for decades, nearly doubling between 2012 and 2016. Consequently, one in four of the nearly 30 million Americans with diabetes is forced to risk their life and ration insulin or skip doses entirely.

Navy Veteran Jay Chen released the following statement in response to Congresswoman Michelle Steel’s stunning dismissal of her constituents’ life-threatening health concerns:

“Americans pay an average of 10 times more for insulin than any other country in the world because corrupt politicians like Michelle Steel prioritize lining the pockets of their corporate friends at the expense of working people. As we contend with rising costs, 7 million Americans are struggling to afford insulin. Today Michelle Steel failed to address our country’s affordability crisis, proving she is all talk and no action.

Michelle Steel wants to take health care away from the 31 million people who rely on the Affordable Care Act. In Congress, I will fight to expand quality affordable health care, lower the cost of prescription drugs and fight corporate greed. I will always prioritize the health and safety of our community.”
