Overcoming Pharma’s Greed and Unanimous Republican Opposition, Democrats Secure Greatest Health Care Achievement Since the ACA, Benefiting Millions By Driving Down Premiums and Prescription Drug Prices

Washington, D.C. — Today, Democrats reached a historic deal to drive down prescription drug costs and lower premiums for millions of Americans. Along with fighting inflation and making key investments in climate and energy, the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 lowers prescription drug prices by giving Medicare the power to negotiate and other measures that will reduce the costs of prescription drugs for millions of Americans, and lowers health care premiums by extending ACA financial assistance for three years. In response, Protect Our Care Chair Leslie Dach issued the following statements:

“The deal reached by Senate Democrats means millions of patients will finally be able to afford the health care they need. Health care is the number one kitchen table issue across America, with too many families forced to choose between paying the bills and affording essential care,” said Protect Our Care Chair Leslie Dach. “By reducing health care premiums and giving Medicare the power to lower prescription drug prices, President Biden and Democrats in Congress are delivering on their promise to lower health care costs and to make health care more accessible and equitable.”
