WCNC-TV Charlotte 2/3/2023 Richard DeVayne

United States Secretary of Health and Human Services, Xavier Becerra, and congress members Alma Adams and Jeff Jackson will be in the Queen City Friday touting the White Houses’ inflation reduction act.

They will hold a news conference at Doc’s Pharmacy Friday morning on what the White House says is how millions of Americans will see lower healthcare costs because of the prescription drug law.

The law, passed last year, with Vice President Harris casting the deciding vote, allows the HHS to negotiate better prices for prescription drugs choosing 10 of 50 of the highest-priced drugs currently on the market.

At the time democrats passed the bill they said it was a major step in making healthcare more affordable. Republicans, meanwhile, are unified in opposition. They are warning about spending against the current economic backdrop.
