Ads in Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, New Hampshire, and Nevada Thank Senators for Standing Up to Big Pharma, Lowering Health Costs and Expanding Care
Washington, DC — Protect Our Care recently launched new digital ads thanking U.S. Senators Mark Kelly (D-AZ), Michael Bennet (D-CO), Raphael Warnock (D-GA), Maggie Hassan (D-NH), and Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV) for voting “yes” on the groundbreaking budget resolution that is being hailed as the “most significant expansion of the nation’s social safety net since Medicare and the Great Society.” Along with their Democratic colleagues in Congress and President Biden, these senators are delivering on their promises by seeking to expand Medicare to include dental, vision, and hearing, lowering premiums for those purchasing their health coverage through the ACA, closing the Medicaid coverage gap, and lowering prescription drug prices. The pandemic has laid bare the high costs and alarming inequities in our health care system, and this vote is a critical step forward to ensure that health care is a right, not a privilege.
“Senate Democrats have responded with bold action necessary to meet this moment,” said Protect Our Care Chair Leslie Dach. “Americans have repeatedly demonstrated the importance of lowering health costs and expanding coverage both at the ballot box and in polling, ranking the issue as their top priority year after year. By holding Big Pharma accountable and allowing Medicare to negotiate drug prices on behalf of all Americans, we will lower drug costs for millions, expand hearing, dental, and vision coverage to seniors, reduce health care premiums for millions of people, and cover more Americans who are currently left behind. Senate Democrats are fighting in Washington on behalf of all Americans and won’t stop until the job is done.”
Arizona’s Senator Mark Kelly just took the first major step to lower health care costs and expand coverage.
He’s working to give Medicare the power to negotiate lower drug prices
… fighting to reduce health insurance premiums
…improving Medicare benefits with dental, vision and hearing coverage for seniors….
…and expanding coverage for millions more who can’t afford it.
Senator Kelly, keep up the fight and get it done.
