Members of the House Democratic Caucus believe that all Americans should have access to quality, affordable health insurance. Our actions have shown our commitment.  Recently, the Affordable Care Act has given the 46 million uninsured Americans the opportunity to access affordable, quality health insurance and strengthened Medicare by providing free preventive benefits and lowering drug costs for millions of beneficiaries while extending the solvency of the Medicare Trust Fund.  House Democrats continue to support adequate funding for essential medical research that improves the health of Americans through the creation of life savings therapies and technologies and strengthens the competitiveness of our domestic medical research industry.  Ensuring the full implementation of the Affordable Care Act and the continued strengthening of Medicare are priorities for Members of the House Democratic Caucus.
