Last night at the Democratic National Convention, Vice President Joe Biden and health care storytellers came together to hold President Trump accountable for his war on America’s health care and highlight Biden’s plan to make health care accessible and affordable. The five storytellers from Arizona, Colorado, Nevada and Wisconsin held a panel discussion with Vice President Biden and explained how the Affordable Care Act has benefited their lives, the lives of their families and their communities. Vice President Biden reassured them that he would protect their health care in the same way he protects his “own family.” 

Vice President Biden’s plan would strengthen the Affordable Care Act, make sure people with pre-existing conditions are protected and expand health care access to every American. Meanwhile, President Trump is arguing before the Supreme Court to dismantle the entire ACA, rip away health care from more than 23 million Americans and end protections for more than 135 million people with pre-existing conditions — all while Americans face the worst public health crisis in a century.
