Washington, DC — Protect Our Care is releasing a new TV ad highlighting President Biden and Democrats in Congress passing the Inflation Reduction Act, which lowers health insurance premiums and prescription drug prices for millions of Americans. For years, lawmakers have promised to take action to rein in Big Pharma’s greed and lower health care costs, but President Biden and Democrats are getting it done.
The landmark legislation lowers costs for the American people by standing up to Big Pharma and giving Medicare the power to negotiate lower drug prices, capping seniors’ out-of-pocket drug costs, and limiting annual price hikes. The bill also lowers health care premiums for 13 million Americans purchasing coverage through the Affordable Care Act.
“The Inflation Reduction Act will deliver real relief to millions of people. Medicare will finally have the power to negotiate for lower drug prices, making sure seniors can afford the medicines they need. Working families will save thousands on health premiums so they have insurance when they need to see a doctor, ” said Protect Our Care Chair Leslie Dach. “By passing this historic legislation, President Biden and Democrats put people over politics, standing up to Big Pharma and their Republican allies to ensure that American families can afford the health care they need for years to come.”
