Washington DC — On day two of Protect Our Care’s “Lower Costs, Better Care” bus tour, Governor Ned Lamont (D-CT), U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), and U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster (D-NH-02) will join health care advocates and Protect Our Care for events in Concord, New Hampshire, and Hartford, Connecticut, celebrating the Inflation Reduction Act’s measures to drive down health care costs. During the events, speakers will discuss how the bill lowers premiums for 13 million Americans, reins in prescription drug prices, and takes important steps to improve health equity.

The “Lower Costs, Better Care” five-week tour will thank lawmakers who fought tirelessly to pass this historic bill and call out Republicans in Congress for rejecting measures to lower costs for millions of working families and seniors and addressing deep inequities in our health care system. Lawmakers have long worked to lower health costs and rein in high drug prices — but President Biden and Democrats in Congress actually got the job done— with help on the way in just a matter of months.
