Long story short: tell President Biden to expand public drug manufacturing capability to lower drug prices, tell your Congressfolk to make Presidential legal memos more transparent, and tell big corporations to stop advertising on Twitter. Use the tools in the upper right-hand corner of this page (or, if you're on a cellphone, the bottom of this page) to find your Congressfolk's phone numbers and/or use the email/petition tools in the following paragraphs.
Drug Prices Are Too High helps you tell President Biden to expand public manufacturing capacity for insulin so that it doesn’t cost good Americans hundreds of dollars every month like it does now. With Republicans finally getting the 218th seat that’ll give them a majority in our House, we sure can’t expect any such action coming from them. But President Biden can use existing authority in the Bayh/Dole Act to allow our government to make more insulin at low prices – insulin that’ll compete with price-gouging big pharma corporations. Hey, the “free” market isn’t providing! And when that happens, our government must step in.
Demand Progress helps you tell your Congressfolk to require the Presidential Office of Legal Counsel to publicly release all of its legal opinions, past and present. Why should they keep them from us, after all? I kid, of course – they keep them from us because they know we’d see through them! After all, our government hasn’t just used OLC “secret memos” to shield Donald Trump from accountability – these memos have also justified torture in violation of the Geneva Conventions (and American law) and expanded, unconstitutional war-making power for our Presidents. Don’t buy the “national security” argument, either. They should be able to keep us safe and be accountable to us.
Finally, Inequality Media helps you tell big corporations to stop advertising on Twitter. General Motors has suspended advertising on Twitter, and if big corporations to follow suit, we might even think of them as guardians of civilization again one day! Elon Musk has turned Twitter into a cesspool of hatred and drama since buying it, and we must hold him accountable for that; absent legislation making social media liable the way publishing houses are, we can wield the Big Stick of Bad PR against any corporation that would advertise on Twitter. We should ask them not to advertise there first, though. We are civilized, after all.
