Care Force One Rolls into Tempe as it Travels Across 16+ States, Making Over 30 Stops and Covering Nearly 8,000 Miles
TEMPE, ARIZONA — On day four of week three of Protect Our Care’s “Lower Costs, Better Care” bus tour, Representative Greg Stanton (D-AZ-04) will join health care advocates and Protect Our Care for events in Tempe and Tucson, demonstrating how recent victories by President Biden and Democrats in Congress are already “Driving Down Health Care Costs” by thousands of dollars a year — with even more savings on the way. During the events, speakers will discuss how the Inflation Reduction Act and other health care measures will improve care and lower costs for the American people. Over four weeks, Care Force One will travel to more than 16 states, make more than 30 stops, and travel nearly 8,000 miles.
The “Lower Costs, Better Care” tour promotes the work of lawmakers who are fighting tirelessly to improve health care and hold Republicans accountable for trying to roll back this progress, hike costs, and rip away protections from the American people. Drug companies and Republican lawmakers are doing everything in their power to roll back this progress in order to put profits over people. August 16 marks the first anniversary of the Inflation Reduction Act and the savings it continues to deliver.
