***MEDIA ADVISORY FOR TUESDAY, JANUARY 11 AT 11:00 AM ET***
Charleston, WV — Today, January 11 at 11:00 AM ET, local health care advocates will join Protect Our Care West Virginia to discuss the House passage of the Build Back Better Act, the most significant expansion of affordable health care since the Affordable Care Act.
After months of negotiation, Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) indicated that he now opposes this legislation. If Senator Manchin fails to support the legislation, he is fighting against lower drug prices, lower health care costs, and improved care for millions of seniors and working families. During the call, speakers will stress the urgent need for Sen. Manchin and the Senate to move quickly to pass the bill so millions of Americans can finally afford the health care they need.
