A new TV ad for Rep Andy Kim (D-Moorestown) in New Jersey’s 3rd district touts the two-term congressman’s legislation to cap the price of prescription drugs for all seniors on Medicare.
The ad, “Start Small,” is narrated by Kim, who tells voters that his legislation, which originated from one of 56 Town Hall meetings he’s held since taking office nearly four years go, will now save seniors $4,000 annually.
Script: “Big things can start small. I’m Andy Kim, and seniors at a town hall told me they were getting crushed by the cost of medicine. So I wrote a bill to cap prescription drug costs for seniors on Medicare. And we stood up against corruption and lobbyists to pass it into law. Seniors will now save four thousand dollars a year. It started right here. I approve this message so we can fight to cut healthcare cuts for all Americans.”
Kim’s Capping Drug Costs for Seniors Act became part of the Inflation Reduction caps out-of-pocket prescription medication costs for seniors on Medicare at $2,000 per year.
A former Obama White House staffer, Kim faces Republican Bob Healey in the November 6 general election.
