PRESS CALL: Protect Our Care, Center for American Progress Action Fund, and Hart Research to Discuss the State of Play in Washington With New National Poll On the Build Back Better Act and Health Care

New Poll Shows Strong, Unwavering Support for Build Back Better Health Care Priorities

Washington, DC — On Monday, September 20 at 2:30 PM ET, Hart Research’s Geoff Gain and the Center for American Progress Action Fund CEO Patrick Gaspard will join Protect Our Care to discuss the political situation in Washington as Congress works to pass budget reconciliation legislation and to present findings from a new national survey on voters’ attitudes towards the Build Back Better Act and health care. The poll found that President Biden’s health care priorities, including reducing health care costs and the price of prescription drugs, are essential to the package’s overall support. 

The event comes as Congress is closing in on a budget agreement that will transform the lives of American families nationwide. President Biden and Democrats are fighting tirelessly to give Medicare the power to negotiate for lower drug prices, close the Medicaid coverage gap, expand Medicare benefits to include vision, dental and hearing, and reduce health care costs for millions of people purchasing coverage on their own. However, the fight is not over: Big Pharma and other special interests are ramping up their lobbying and scare tactics to protect profits and lie to the American people. The new survey makes clear that voters’ attitudes remain unswayed by these influences, and that every single one of these health care priorities are central to the bill’s success.

Patrick Gaspard, CEO of the Center for American Progress Action Fund
Geoff Garin, President of Hart Research
Brad Woodhouse, Executive Director of Protect Our Care
