Washington, D.C. — On Friday, March 8, 2024, at 9:30 AM ET, U.S. Representatives Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ-06) and Bobby Scott (D-VA-03) will join U.S. Senator Peter Welch (D-VT) and Protect Our Care for a virtual press conference to discuss President Biden’s State of the Union address. According to press reports the President will celebrate the administration’s health accomplishments and outline further action to lower costs and improve care for people across the nation. Republicans, on the other hand, are waging a full-blown war on health care by threatening to repeal the Affordable Care Act, upending reproductive care, raising premiums, ending Medicare and Medicaid as we know it, reversing recent coverage gains, and hiking prescription drug costs for the American people.

Democrats have delivered on health care promises, expanding affordable coverage, driving down prescription drug costs, strengthening Medicaid for moms and kids, and reducing inequities in care. This year, a record 21.3 million people signed up for coverage under the ACA marketplaces, seniors are saving on insulin and vaccine costs, and Medicare is negotiating lower prices for some of the costliest drugs on the market.
