“Madame Speaker, it’s good to be able to stand on the House floor and speak not about the crisis of the day, or even my hopes for tomorrow, but about something this Congress has done to make people’s lives better. 

When I first ran for this job, the number one demand I heard from voters was, ‘Make healthcare more accessible, and the Affordable Care Act more affordable.’

With the American Rescue Plan, that’s what we have done in a major way. 

By increasing ACA subsidies and capping premiums, we are enabling the typical middle-class family with marketplace coverage to save hundreds of dollars a month. A 60-year-old couple making $75,000 a year, will save almost $1,400 a month. That’s life changing.

Now we just have to make this permanent to keep the promise that no American should be crushed by the cost of their health care and to give people hope that if they continue to vote for better government, they will continue to get it.

Thank you, and I yield back.”
