TODAY: Chairman Frank Pallone and Health Advocates to Discuss Historic Health Provisions in Build Back Better Act and Call for Immediate Passage in the Senate
New Jersey — Today, Monday November 29 at 10:30 AM ET, U.S. Representative Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ-06) and local advocates will join Protect Our Care New Jersey and Honest Arizona to discuss the House passage of the Build Back Better Act, the most significant expansion of affordable health care since the Affordable Care Act.
The landmark legislation includes measures to deliver relief to American families by lowering insurance premiums, giving Medicare the power to negotiate for lower drug prices, expanding affordable coverage to millions by closing the Medicaid coverage gap, expanding Medicare benefits, and investing $150 billion in home care for seniors and people with disabilities. During the call, speakers will stress the urgent need for the Senate to move quickly to pass the bill so millions of Americans can finally afford the health care they need.
