***MEDIA ADVISORY FOR TODAY, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 6 AT 3:30 PM ET***
Philadelphia, PA — Today, October 6 at 3:30 PM ET, U.S. Representative Susan Wild (D-PA-07) will headline a virtual roundtable to highlight how historic health care provisions included in the Democrats’ budget reconciliation legislation will lower costs and expand access for Pennsylvanians. Local health care advocates from For Our Future Pennsylvania, Protect Our Care Pennsylvania, MomsRising, The Pennsylvania Health Access Network, and The 99% Campaign will join Rep. Wild, illustrating the growing momentum for President Biden’s Build Back Better plan.
The Build Back Better proposal includes driving down prescription drug prices, expanding Medicare benefits to include vision, dental, and hearing, closing the Medicaid coverage gap, dramatically lowering the cost of health insurance for millions, and increasing the accessibility and affordability of home health and child care.
This event will showcase how President Biden and the Democrats are fighting to make affordable health care a reality in Pennsylvania through historic health care provisions included in their budget reconciliation legislation.
