The House of Representatives passed a sweeping bill this week aimed at lowering drug costs, cracking down on drug companies' abusive practices, and empowering Medicare to negotiate prices directly with drug companies. Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA), a co-sponsor of the bill, is talking about the issue with community members near Richmond, VA. She says her constituents are being 'gouged at the pharmacy counter' by skyrocketing drug costs.

The conversation is hosted by SEIU Virginia and Virginia Organizing, and is streaming exclusively on NowThis.
