Biden and Sanders unite to advocate for lower healthcare expenses

Biden and Sanders Unite on Healthcare Costs: A Look at Biden’s Accomplishments and Their Future Together

President Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders joined forces on Wednesday to highlight the administration’s efforts to reduce the cost of inhalers and other healthcare needs. The White House is actively showcasing Biden’s accomplishments ahead of the upcoming November elections. During an event at the Indian Treaty Room at the White House, Biden acknowledged their 25-year fight to lower healthcare costs and defeat Big Pharma.

Together, both men emphasized the benefits of the Democrats’ comprehensive climate, healthcare, and tax package that Biden signed into law in 2022. The legislation includes caps on various healthcare expenses for Medicare recipients, such as $35 a month for insulin and $2,000 a year for prescription drugs. Despite the popularity of Biden’s achievements, particularly in reducing healthcare costs, Republican lawmakers did not vote in favor of the law.

Biden and Sanders also discussed their efforts to urge major inhaler manufacturers to limit the cost of these devices to $35 a month. Without insurance, inhalers typically range in price from $200 to $600. Sanders expressed his gratitude to President Biden for his current actions on this issue and expressed his commitment to working together in the future.

Although Biden and Sanders were opponents in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary, they have since collaborated to ensure Sanders’ influence is reflected in party policy platforms. Despite the lack of credit from voters, Biden’s success in lowering healthcare costs remains a significant achievement for his administration.
