Watch All Bus Tour Stops Live Here.

Atlanta, GA – On Wednesday, October 26, U.S. Representative Sanford Bishop (D-GA-02) and Carolyn Bourdeaux (D-GA-07) will join health care advocates and local residents as part of Protect Our Care’s nationwide bus tour to celebrate the Inflation Reduction Act’s measures to drive down health care costs for millions of working families and seniors. At Wednesday’s events, speakers will discuss how the bill lowers premiums for 13 million Americans, gives Medicare the power to negotiate for lower drug prices for seniors, delivers relief to people with disabilities, people of color, and rural Americans. Speakers will also let Georgians know how and when they can access these new benefits.

The “Lower Costs, Better Care” five-week tour will thank lawmakers who fought tirelessly to pass this historic bill and call out Republicans in Congress for rejecting measures to lower costs for millions of working families and seniors and addressing deep inequities in our health care system. Lawmakers have long worked to lower health costs and rein in high drug prices — but President Biden and Democrats in Congress actually got the job done— with help on the way in just a matter of months.
