PhRMA Statement on AARP-White House Press Conference
Date:6/22/2009

WASHINGTON, June 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) President & CEO Billy Tauzin today issued the following statement regarding today's AARP-White House press conference on health care reform:

Our $80 billion pledge toward that goal represents a huge financial commitment by America's pharmaceutical research and biotechnology companies. But we have a shared vision: every single person in America, regardless of their income, should have access to affordable, high-quality health care coverage and services.

"Even though we have had policy disagreements in the past, this is an historic coming-together moment. AARP, the largest advocacy organization on behalf of American seniors, clearly recognizes the importance of innovative, cutting-edge medicines to the lives of patients everywhere.

"And we recognize that a medicine which sits on a shelf out of reach of patients financially doesn't do anyone any good.

The Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) represents the country's leading pharmaceutical research and biotechnology companies, which are devoted to inventing medicines that allow patients to live longer, healthier, and more productive lives. PhRMA companies are leading the way in the se
