WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger today released the following statement ahead of President Joe Biden’s visit to Culpeper in Virginia’s Seventh District on Thursday.

“I welcome the opportunity to bring the President of the United States to my district to hear directly from the people I serve. On Thursday, I will be speaking with President Biden in Virginia’s Seventh District to discuss how we can work together to lower the cost of prescription drugs.

“Addressing this affordability crisis has been one of my top priorities since arriving in Congress. For Virginia’s seniors, the rising cost of lifesaving prescription medications is creating significant uncertainty. When I meet with families, I hear heartbreaking stories related to high insulin costs and the middlemen who are ripping them off. And when I talk to our neighbors with chronic conditions, I learn about the tough financial decisions they are forced to make — such as skipping meals or putting off mortgage payments — because of skyrocketing drug prices.

“I am grateful for the administration’s attention to this issue — but more than that, I look forward to hearing the President’s strategy for how we can sign a transformative prescription drug-focused bill into law. Additionally, I will be speaking with him personally about the economic challenges and opportunities facing our district and our Commonwealth in this moment of rebuilding and recovery.”
