Washington D.C.- The National Association of Manufacturers has launched a six-figure TV and cable ad campaign ahead of a potential reconciliation bill that threatens manufacturing innovation and competitiveness. The campaign calls on senators to oppose government price controls that would undermine the development of lifesaving drugs and the livelihoods of manufacturing workers across America who deliver them.
“Government price-fixing programs that undermine our ongoing work to develop life-saving cures for diseases like cancer and Alzheimer’s and respond to health crises are never the answer,” said the president and CEO of NAM executive Jay Timmons. “At a time when manufacturers are already facing extraordinary economic pressures, the Senate should focus on strengthening the competitiveness of our industry, not undermining it. We call on senators to vote “no” to reconciliation and to stand with American manufacturers and workers who are integral to fighting this pandemic and finding future cures. »
