Chrysa Ostenso Joined Other Health Care Advocates to Watch President Biden Announce Measures to Strengthen the ACA and Lower Costs for Millions of Americans
WISCONSIN — Yesterday, Wisconsinite Chrysa Ostenso joined with health care storytellers and advocates from across the country at the White House to celebrate the success of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and President Biden’s ongoing efforts to improve the health care law and cut costs for families. During the event, former President Obama noted that, in the fight to pass the ACA, he and President Biden were determined to deliver because “we met too many people on the campaign trail who’d shared their stories.” The tireless work of storytellers helped usher the ACA into law, protected it from GOP repeal and sabotage, and is now driving the fight to build on the ACA today.
The event comes as President Biden and Democrats in Congress are working to build on the ACA by driving down prescription drug prices, lowering premiums, and further expanding access to affordable care. More information on President Biden’s health care achievements can be found here.
