On Thursday, December 23, 2021 at 11:00am, health care and patient advocates will join Protect Our Care West Virginia to discuss the urgent need to pass the Build Back Better Act in response to Joe Manchin’s recent decision not to support the bill. After months of negotiation, Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) indicated that he now opposes this legislation. If Senator Manchin fails to support the legislation, he is fighting against lower drug prices, lower health care costs, and improved care for millions of seniors and working families. Health care is a fundamental part of the Build Back Better agenda, and the plans to reduce costs and expand care are the top issues for voters. It is urgent that Sen. Manchin vote to pass this historic legislation.
