Lowering Prices

Comments off

From the grocery aisle to the gas pump, Matt understands that prices are simply out of control. That’s why he’s helped lead efforts to address supply chain issues and take on the greed of corporate special interests looking to fatten their bottom lines by overcharging us.

In Congress, he’s supported legislation to allow the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and state attorneys general to crack down on big oil companies who are exploiting Americans by overcharging at the gas pump and helped pass anti price-gouging legislation to hold those looking to exploit our community for profit accountable.

He also helped pass a bill that will alleviate supply-chain backups and drive down prices by requiring the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) to crack down on shipping carriers charging inaccurate fees and unreasonably refusing space on ships with goods headed to the United States. This will help alleviate supply chain bottlenecks and help get our national and local economy back on track by getting shelves restocked and lowering prices.

Matt also provided relief to our area’s seniors by supporting legislation that has capped the cost of insulin for seniors at $35 per month and will cap out-of-pocket prescription drug expenses for everyone on Medicare at $2,000 per month beginning in 2025.

Matt’s top priority is to bring down prices and ease the burden on working families.
