Over 13 Years, Nancy Pelosi Has Championed the Passage, Protection, and Expansion of the ACA, Ensuring Affordable Health Care for Millions of Families Nationwide
Washington, DC – On Wednesday, March 22, 2023, at 11 AM ET, Speaker Emerita Nancy Pelosi will join Protect Our Care and storytellers in an intimate round table discussion to celebrate the 13th anniversary of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Speakers will reflect on the achievements of the ACA and how they have been personally affected by its passage.
Speaker Pelosi was instrumental in getting the ACA over the finish line and giving millions peace of mind knowing they can afford the care they need. Not only was Nancy Pelosi central to its passage, but she thwarted Republican efforts to repeal the ACA and its protections for millions of Americans with pre-existing conditions. In the last year alone, she built on the ACA by passing the Inflation Reduction Act to deliver lower health care and prescription drug costs for millions of seniors and families across the nation. This past open enrollment period was the most successful in the history of the ACA with almost 16 million signing up for coverage, proving these policies have touched the lives of nearly every person in the nation, providing patients with lifesaving care.
