Brooklyn, NY – Today, Democratic Leader Hakeem Jeffries released the following statement.
Under the leadership of President Biden, Democrats have delivered on our promise to make health care more affordable and accessible for American families. Today’s announcement means more than 21 million people will have high-quality, affordable health care in 2024, shattering all previous Open Enrollment Period records.
Last Congress, Democrats strengthened the Affordable Care Act by passing the American Rescue Plan and later the Inflation Reduction Act, bringing down the cost of health care, expanding coverage, and helping our nation’s uninsured rate reach a historic low, with nearly nine million more people insured. Extreme MAGA Republicans are intent on repealing the Affordable Care Act, ripping away protections for more than 100 million Americans with pre-existing conditions, and raising health care costs for working families and seniors. House Democrats will never allow that to happen.
