***MEDIA ADVISORY FOR FRIDAY, DECEMBER 3 AT 10:30 AM CT // 11:30 AM ET***
Wisconsin — On Friday December 3 at 10:30 AM CT // 11:30 AM ET, U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), Ben Wilson of Citizen Action Wisconsin, and patient storytellers, will join Protect Our Care Wisconsin 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.
