- The cost of prescription drugs can sometimes make them unaffordable for people who need them.
Some don't take their medicine because of that price.
Wednesday, Democratic gubernatorial nominee Tony Evers spoke to people in Wausau about his new plan to lower the costs of prescription drugs, "Pay Less for Rx.".
Evers wants to follow the lead of other states in the country that have a person or a board that makes sure price gauging doesn't happen. His plan includes getting drugs from Canada, and making sure senior care is an affordable option.
Two women spoke at the Marathon County Democratic Party Office about their difficulties paying for prescription drugs.
"The costs are excessive and we can't wait for some accident to happen, wait for people to have struggles like the two people talking in there. We need to be proactive about it. The people of Wisconsin need protection from the gauging that big pharmacy companies do," said Evers.
With less than a month to until the election, Evers says he and running mate Mandela Barnes will continue to travel across the state, talking about issues important in their campaign about like education, natural resources, and healthcare.
"They're not Democratic issues, they're not Republican issues, they're about Wisconsin values and that's what we're going to continue to focus on," said Evers.
Wednesday Governor Scott Walker campaigned in Green Bay and Eau Claire with Vice President Mike Pence.
