Senate Legislation Will Have Detrimental Impact on Health Care
Washington, DC – The following statement is from the Council for Affordable Health Coverage regarding the U.S. Senate passing the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act”:
The Senate passed short-sighted legislation that will have a detrimental impact on the cost of health care for all Americans – both on Medicare and those who have private or employer-sponsored coverage. The bill kills competition and innovation, leading to higher costs and a decline in new lifesaving drugs while doing nothing to lower inflation.
We now call on the House of Representatives to do the right thing and vote no on the Inflation Reduction Act.
