Biden to tout phar­ma's de­feat in State of the Union, call for $35 in­sulin for all

Pres­i­dent Joe Biden will take to his sec­ond State of the Union this evening with plans for op­ti­mism, and a call for uni­ver­sal, $35 per month in­sulin, along with high­lights of one of his biggest self-de­scribed suc­cess­es so far — the de­feat of phar­ma com­pa­nies with the in­sti­tu­tion of Medicare ne­go­ti­a­tions for drug prices.

“Pres­i­dent Biden took on Big Phar­ma — and won,” a White House fact sheet said ahead of the speech this evening.
