Care Force One Rolls into Johns Creek, GA as Part of Nationwide “Lower Cost, Better Care” Tour
Atlanta, GA — On Friday, November 4th, at 11:00 AM, Representative Lucy McBath will join HHS Regional Director Antrell Tyson, and Medicare beneficiary Sara Cherry as part of Protect Our Care’s nationwide bus tour to celebrate the Inflation Reduction Act’s measures to drive down health care costs for millions of working families and seniors. At today’s event, speakers will discuss how the bill gives Medicare the power to negotiate for lower drug prices, caps out of pocket costs for insulin and lowers other prescription drug prices for seniors. The event will take place in front of Care Force One at Newtown Park on Friday, November 4th at 11 AM.
The “Lower Costs, Better Care” five-week tour will thank lawmakers who fought tirelessly to pass this historic bill and call out Republicans in Congress for rejecting measures to lower costs for millions of working families and seniors and addressing deep inequities in our health care system. Lawmakers have long worked to lower health costs and rein in high drug prices — but President Biden and Democrats in Congress actually got the job done— with help on the way in just a matter of months.
