Washington, D.C. — Ahead of tomorrow’s State of the Union address, the Biden-Harris administration released an agenda to build on the work of the Inflation Reduction Act and lower health care costs for even more Americans. Specifically, President Biden outlined a list of priorities to lower prescription drug prices, extend affordable health care coverage through the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and Medicaid, crack down on junk plans and surprise medical expenses, and protect health care for seniors and families for years to come. 

Meanwhile, the Republicans are dead set on raising the costs of health care, denying coverage to millions of people, and slashing funding for critical programs. Learn more about the MAGA-Republican plan for health care here.

In response, Protect Our Care Chair Leslie Dach issued the following statement: 

“Joe Biden is a health care president. From day one, this administration has fought tooth and nail to lower costs and make affordable health care a reality for seniors and families across the nation. In the face of so many attacks on health care from across the aisle, President Biden is doubling down on his efforts to lower drug prices, keep premium costs low, expand Medicaid, and put the health and well-being of families first. By releasing this bold plan to build on the administration’s health care victories, President Biden is addressing the top concern from voters of all parties.”
