Republicans Reject Common Sense Fix to Drive Down Health Care Costs

By April 29, 2022No Comments

Washington DC — Yesterday, Representative Kevin Brady (R-TX) and Senator Mike Crapo (R-ID) sent a letter in opposition of the Biden administration’s efforts to fix the “family glitch” and expand affordable health coverage to millions of working families. In response, Protect Our Care Chair Leslie Dach issued the following statement: 

“Republicans’ opposition to fixing family glitch and other common sense, popular policies shows they don’t care about helping American families. While offering zero solutions to lower people’s cost of living, Republican lawmakers are simply restating their opposition to the ACA and its protections for millions of Americans. The truth is every Republican voted against the American Rescue Plan, which delivered lower premiums for millions, and they continue to block Medicare negotiation, insulin cost caps, and expanded access to affordable coverage. If the GOP gets their way, it means you pay more and you get less — greater premiums, higher prescription drug prices, and worse care at the doctor’s office.”
