Washington DC — Today, following House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s historic announcement, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer also confirmed he would not seek an elected leadership position in the 118th Congress. In response, Protect Our Care Executive Director Brad Woodhouse issued the following statement:

“Majority Leader Hoyer has worked tirelessly on behalf of the American people to make sure everyone has access to affordable health care. Under his leadership, Democrats passed the Affordable Care Act, protected Medicare and Medicaid from Republican attacks, and took on Big Pharma to lower prescription drug costs. This year, Majority Leader Hoyer’s leadership was pivotal in negotiations for the Inflation Reduction Act, which lowers premium and prescription drug costs for millions of families. We owe a great deal of thanks to Majority Leader Hoyer and his work that has helped pave the way for quality, affordable, and equitable health care for Marylanders and people across the nation. Whether in congressional leadership or not, Steny Hoyer will always be a health care champion.”
