The American Rescue Plan expanded subsidies for buying insurance on Affordable Care Act exchanges. In addition, anyone who receives unemployment benefits this year can qualify for zero-premium health insurance. Liz Weston explains the free coverage.

The promised Employment Bill never materialised; nothing on how we reform social care; not a word about #fireandrehire ; nothing about affordable housing. We did get Voter ID cards, a more draconian immigration plan, free-for-all for developers and a threat to NHS privatisation.

Football season. Stay-at-home (& accessible & affordable) testing. International travel. Health care innovation. @jimcramer  is tackling all of this with @AbbottNews  CEO Robert Ford. Abbott is going all in on changing the testing game at truly rapid speeds. #HealthyReturns 

The federal government is extending the window for people to apply for help getting insurance through the Affordable Care Act.

We won’t truly recover from this pandemic unless we get women back into the workplace. And we can do that by taking action to make child care affordable, ensure equal pay, and expand paid leave.

We can—and should—be doing everything in our power to get more people quality, affordable health care coverage, and thanks to a special enrollment period, that is a reality for more than 1 million more people.

Speaker of the House Rep. Ryan Fecteau and Senate President Troy Jackson are sponsoring bills this year to find some answers to the fundamental problem of too many Maine families unable to find affordable, quality child care.

Thanks to President Biden’s open enrollment period, 1 million Americans now have health care! Democrats are committed to expanding access to quality, affordable health care and we’ll keep building on this work. Get covered today at !

We recognized a need for decentralized testing years ago, a trend that was accelerated by the pandemic. Now we’re focused on developing affordable testing innovations for conditions beyond infectious diseases that brings care closer to the patient. #HealthyReturns

So let me get this straight: Republicans in Congress wanted to impeach Obama for passing the Affordable Care Act, but they don't want to impeach Trump for inciting an insurrection?

Pres Trump: I am signing the first-ever executive order to affirm that it is the "official policy of the United States Government to protect patients with pre-existing conditions." Fact: The Affordable Care Act signed by Pres Obama made covering pre-existing conditions U.S. law.

Today Republicans denied the will of the American people by confirming a Supreme Court justice through an illegitimate process—all in their effort to gut the Affordable Care Act and strip health care from millions with pre-existing conditions. We won’t forget this.

I asked Amy Coney Barrett whether she had seen or heard statements before her nomination from Donald Trump promising to nominate judges who would rule against the Affordable Care Act. Her answer? “I don’t recall.”

Trump’s hand-picked successor to Justice Ginsburg’s seat makes it clear: they intend to destroy the Affordable Care Act & overturn Roe. This selection would move the court further right for a generation & harm millions of Americans. I strongly oppose Judge Barrett’s nomination.

Right now, Donald Trump is in court trying to get rid of the Affordable Care Act. If he's successful, over 20 million people will lose their health coverage. Health care justice is on the ballot in November.

Ten years ago today, I signed the Affordable Care Act into law. It protected preexisting conditions, cut the uninsured rate in half, and lots more. But it's still under political attack right when we need care the most. We have to protect it, build on it, until we cover everyone.

A reminder that *right now* the Trump administration is suing to destroy the entire Affordable Care Act. All of it.

Nothing is more important than saving the Affordable Care Act from another cruel effort to take health care away from millions of people.
