Washington, DC — Today, the White House announced that a record 31 million people now have coverage thanks to the Affordable Care Act. In response, Protect Our Care Chair Leslie Dach issued the following statement:

“This is great news and further proof that the ACA works, is resilient, and that Americans want it and need it. President Obama and President Biden deserve America’s thanks. We need to continue to build on the law to reduce costs, expand Medicaid in Republican states that have refused to do the right thing, and extend the ACA’s success to the next frontier in health care — lowering the cost of prescription drugs. The news today of more than 30 million Americans covered by the ACA shines an even brighter spotlight on the Supreme Court’s pending decision on the future of the ACA in a case brought by right-wing partisans and which should be resoundingly rejected by the court.”
