“Tens of thousands of Connecticut residents are living paycheck-to-paycheck. Yet Rob Sampson was the only State Senator who voted to protect the big prescription drug companies, allowing them to increase the price of life-saving drugs like insulin.” – Jack Perry

- During a pandemic, everyone should have access to affordable healthcare. and should not be denied coverage due to a pre-existing condition.
- Will push to hold big corporations accountable – making prescription drugs more affordable for Connecticut seniors and families.
“We must increase competition in the marketplace. A public option will do just that, it will lower costs while also increasing the quality of care and coverage. The only reason why costs are so high is because of greed” – Jack Perry
Thousands of Connecticut residents have lost their healthcare over the past four months—during the pandemic. Jack Perry believes that the debate over whether healthcare is a right or a privilege is irrelevant now. During a pandemic, everyone should have access to affordable healthcare and should not be denied coverage due to a pre-existing condition, because we cannot have a healthy economy if people are not healthy themselves.
Jack Perry believes that drug companies are making record profits while many Connecticut residents are forced to choose between paying for their housing or affording their prescriptions—leading to dangerous practices like rationing insulin. That’s why Perry will push to make prescription drugs more affordable for Connecticut seniors and families.
