Group hosts town hall in Milwaukee to address rising prescription drug costs for seniors

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- State lawmakers joined area seniors for a town hall Friday, Oct. 11 in Milwaukee to address the rising cost of their prescription drugs.

Friday’s town hall at the Italian Community Center is the first of a series that will be held across the country called, "Don't cut pills, Cut profits."

The organization called The National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare says the goal of the campaign is to inform and mobilize older Americans who are concerned with the rising costs of their prescription drug costs.

The organization is holding the town hall in partnership with AARP. Guests include Governor Tony Evers and both democratic and republican state senators and representatives. 

The group says prices for the 20 most-prescribed drugs for seniors increased 10 times the rate of inflation between 2013 and 2018 and it is hurting them financially.

The town hall is at the Italian Community Center starts at 10 a.m. Friday and is free and is followed by lunch
