Health Care for All! Coalition Statement About US Senate Passage of Inflation Reduction Act
Vincent DeMarco, president of the Maryland HealthCare for All! Coalition, released the following statement today following the Senate’s vote to approve the Inflation Reduction Act:
“We commend the United States Senate for passing today landmark legislation which will make high-cost drugs more affordable for Americans on Medicare and continue critically needed health care subsidies for millions of Americans on the Affordable Care Act.
“Hundreds of thousands of Marylanders will live healthier and better lives because of the Inflation Reduction Act which also does much to protect our planet from the ravages of climate change. We call upon the U.S. House of Representatives to give this life saving measure final passage as soon as possible.
Special thanks to President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris and Maryland’s two terrific Senators, Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen, for their leadership on the Inflation Reduction Act.”
