Richmond, VA — On day 25 of Protect Our Care’s “Lower Costs, Better Care” bus tour, U.S. Representatives Jennifer McClellan (D-VA-04) and Abigail Spanberger (D-VA-07) will join health care advocates and Protect Our Care for an event in Richmond, VA, demonstrating how recent victories by President Biden and Democrats in Congress are already “Driving Down Health Care Costs” by thousands of dollars a year — with even more savings on the way. During the events, speakers will discuss how the Inflation Reduction Act and other health care measures will improve care and lower costs for the American people. Over four weeks, Care Force One will travel to more than 16 states, make more than 30 stops, and travel nearly 8,000 miles. 

The “Lower Costs, Better Care” tour promotes the work of lawmakers who are fighting tirelessly to improve health care and hold Republicans accountable for trying to roll back this progress and hike costs and rip away protections from the American people. While drug companies and Republican lawmakers are doing everything in their power to roll back this progress in order to put profits over people, lawmakers like U.S. Representatives Jennifer McClellan (D-VA-04) and Abigail Spanberger (D-VA-07) will stop at nothing to lower costs and improve care for people across Virginia.
