WASHINGTON – Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) today spoke on the senate floor about his amendment to the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, which would lower the cost of insulin for middle and low-income Americans. 

The senator made the following statements during his remarks:

“Mr. President, my amendment—which I also offer on behalf of many of my Republican colleagues—would substantially and dramatically reduce the cost of insulin for millions of Americans.”

. . .

“My amendment would reimplement a rule that President Biden repealed: My amendment would make insulin available at Federally Qualified Health Centers for pennies on the dollar, and it would pay for itself by redirecting existing money from the Obamacare Public Health Prevention Fund.”
