***MEDIA ADVISORY FOR TODAY, NOVEMBER 16 AT 1:10 PM MST // 3:10 PM EST ***

Phoenix, AZ Today, Tuesday, November 16 at 1:10 PM MST // 3:10 PM EST, U.S. Representative Tom O’Halleran (D-AZ-01), Dora Vasquez, Executive Director of the Arizona Alliance for Retired Americans, and local advocates will join Protect Our Care Arizona, calling on Congress to immediately pass the Build Back Better Act. The coalition will also discuss significant health care provisions in the Build Back Better Act —including giving Medicare the power to negotiate lower drug prices, addressing the Medicaid coverage gap, and much more — to lower costs and improve access to health care.

This transformative act by President Biden and Democrats in Congress will reduce racial disparities in health care, create healthier communities, and strengthen the economy. The health care measures in Build Back Better will lower costs and improve and expand access to lifesaving care. Once passed by Congress and signed into law, the Build Back Better act will be the most significant expansion of affordable health care since the passage of the Affordable Care Act.
