New reporting from the American Independent detailed the over $70,000 in campaign donations that Republican Rep. Don Bacon received from the pharmaceutical industry and manufacturing in this election cycle as he repeatedly does big pharma’s bidding in Congress.
As a reminder, Bacon voted against the Inflation Reduction Act, legislation that will cap drug prices for Medicare recipients across the country – and then tried to lie about it in a campaign ad this week. The bill also allows Medicare to negotiate for lower prescription drugs costs.
Yet again, Bacon chose lining his own pockets over people, putting corporations over Nebraska communities.
Said DCCC Spokesperson Johanna Warshaw: “Don Bacon has repeatedly voted against legislation to lower prescription drug costs for Nebraskans – and now we know he’s even willing to lie about it. Bacon has a proven track record of choosing corporations and special interests over Nebraska families, and voters will eagerly elect new leadership in November who actually deliver for them.”
