Biden and Sanders unite to advocate for lower healthcare expenses

President Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders joined forces on Wednesday to highlight the administration’s efforts to reduce healthcare costs and improve access to other healthcare needs. The White House is actively showcasing Biden’s accomplishments ahead of the upcoming November elections, with both men emphasizing the benefits of the Democrats’ comprehensive climate, healthcare, and tax package that Biden signed into law in 2022.

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 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 they were opponents during the 2020 Democratic presidential primary, they have since collaborated to ensure Sanders’ influence is reflected in party policy platforms. Despite facing criticism from Republican lawmakers who did not vote in favor of the law, Biden’s success in lowering healthcare costs remains a significant achievement for his administration.
