Watch: The iron grip of Big Pharma (and why we need to fight back)

The Senate confirmed a pharmaceutical company CEO, Alex Azar, as Trump's new head of Health and Human Services. Big Pharma's grip on our political system is a huge issue, and it's time to spread the truth.

Dear fellow MoveOn member,

Just weeks ago, the Senate confirmed a pharmaceutical company CEO, Alex Azar, as Trump’s new head of Health and Human Services.1 He made millions as his company, Eli Lilly, jacked up the price of life-saving drugs.2 Now he’s the fox guarding the henhouse.
That's why I've released a new video with MoveOn that dives into how drug companies set high prices, why Congress lets them get away with it, and how MoveOn members can help to solve the problem.

Thanks for all you do.

Want to support MoveOn's work? The MoveOn community will work every moment, day by day and year by year, to resist Trump's agenda, contain the damage, defeat hate with love, and begin the process of swinging the nation's pendulum back toward sanity, decency, and the kind of future that we must never give up on. Will you stand with MoveOn?

Yes, I'll chip in $5 a month.

No, I'm sorry, I can't make a monthly donation.
