Last week, Republicans on the House Ways & Means Committee released their oversight agenda for next year, naming their top priority as investigating new policies that have made coverage under the ACA more affordable for millions of families. Once again, Republicans are showing that they are completely out of step with the American people and are seeking to use their majority to attack health care. This comes as ACA signups are surging and people are saving thousands of dollars a year on care.
SHOT: GOP Lawmakers on the House Ways & Means Committee Release Agenda to “Investigate” Obamacare. “Illegal Expansion of Obamacare: Thanks to Obamacare, Americans are paying higher health care costs for less access, yet Democrats’ only solution is to keep expanding it, including its latest illegal rewrite. Republicans want to know how the Administration justifies these partisan decisions that make health care for American families worse.” [House Committee on Ways and Means, 11/18/22]
CHASER: The ACA is More Affordable and Popular Than Ever Before. “Big announcement from @POTUS just now: new Open Enrollment signs ups on https://HealthCare.gov are up nearly 40% compared to the same time last year. Thanks to the Inflation Reduction Act, 4 in 5 people can find coverage for under $10.” [@SecBecerra, 11/18/22]
