In 2024 Protect Our Care is working to bring lower costs and better care to more Americans, defend critical health care programs from the MAGA agenda, and educate voters on recent improvements to their health care and the threats to that progress.
The issue of health care is incredibly salient everywhere in America and the policies in this agenda are overwhelmingly popular with Americans, no matter their political party. Lowering health care costs is one of the most effective ways to put money back into the American people’s pockets. These policies are also critical to tackling systemic inequities that persist due to racism and discrimination and are needed to address basic conditions that affect health outcomes, particularly for historically marginalized people including people of color, rural Americans, LGBTQ+ individuals, and people with disabilities.
In 2024, Protect Our Care will work with the Biden administration, Congress, and allies to build on recent achievements to lower costs and improve health care for all Americans. Our agenda includes making lower Marketplace premiums permanent, expanding the Inflation Reduction Act’s lower drug costs to people with private insurance, closing the Medicaid coverage gap, making 12 months of postpartum Medicaid coverage mandatory in all states, and taking additional steps to lower costs and improve care. Additionally, it is critical to hold Republicans accountable for their attacks – whether in Congress or the courts – on Medicare, Medicaid, lower prescription drug costs, and the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Finally, Protect Our Care will continue to educate voters about the lower costs and better care achieved by the Biden administration and Democrats in Congress over the last three years.
