Dear President Biden,

We urge you to put an end to the ways big drug companies block generic drugs from making it to our pharmacy shelves. When drug companies abuse the patent system to keep competitors off the market, it allows them to maintain their monopoly and keep drug prices high. Please direct the U.S. Patent and Trademarks Office (PTO) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to end patent thickets and other anticompetitive practices. More generics will result in more savings for patients.
