SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

The Inflation Reduction Act just signed by President Biden is the biggest improvement to our health care system in over a decade.
This is exactly what federal legislation should do—it leverages the government’s purchasing power to lower costs for Americans who struggle to pay for life-saving medications.
It also helps people who purchase their health care themselves—often small business owners and entrepreneurs—to actually be able to afford quality coverage for themselves and their families.
I thank Rep. Mike Levin for doing the right thing and standing up for the families of their district instead of buckling to pressure from Big Pharma.
