Yes on Issue 2: Ohioans Will Vote Yes after Seeing Ballot Language

Yes Vote Will Limit Price Gouging by Greedy Drug Companies

COLUMBUS, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Yes on Issue 2 campaign believes Ohioans will vote yes this November
after reading the ballot
 approved today to lower drug prices for 4 million Ohioans,
including 164,000 children, and save taxpayers $400 million.

“Voters in Ohio are well-informed, smart and angry at the greedy drug
companies that have been price-gouging the sick and suffering, and
putting profits before patients,”
 said Dennis Willard, spokesperson
for the Yes on Issue 2 campaign. “The language is simple and
straightforward just like our plan to lower drug prices for 4 million
Ohioans and save taxpayers $400 million a year.”

A yes vote would, according to the ballot language, “require the state
of Ohio, including its state departments, agencies and entities, to not
pay more for prescription drugs than the price paid by the United States
Department of Veterans Affairs.”

“This program has worked for veterans for 25 years. A yes vote on
Issue 2 will protect veterans and lower drug prices,”
 Willard said. “Voters
are learning that the men in the shadows writing checks to the no to
lower drug prices campaign are greedy drug company CEOs who are ashamed
to be associated with the campaign of lies and distortions they are
running to protect their obscene profits.”

The Yes on Issue 2 campaign is a broad-based, bi-partisan coalition.
More than 200,000 Ohio voters signed petitions to put an amendment on
the ballot in November that will lower drug prices for over 4 million
Ohioans, including 164,000 children, save taxpayers $400 million
annually, reduce healthcare costs for everyone and teach greedy drug
companies and their CEOs a lesson.
