Biden, Harris Celebrate ACA Anniversary While Taking Aim at Republican Health Care Agenda in Critical Battleground State of North Carolina

In Raleigh, North Carolina, President Biden and Vice President Harris celebrated the 14th anniversary of the Affordable Care Act being signed into law. However, the trip was not just a celebration for them; it was also an opportunity to criticize the health care agenda of the Republicans.

Biden spoke in front of a crowd and highlighted the attempts by Trump and Republicans to limit abortion and reduce health care coverage. He pointed out how numerous times they had tried to repeal the Affordable Care Act without success. Biden emphasized the importance of moving forward together, protecting democracy, ensuring health care as a right, and restoring freedom to choose.

The visit coincided with recent polling that showed Biden narrowing Trump’s lead in North Carolina from 9 percentage points to 6 percentage points. This makes North Carolina an important battleground state in the upcoming election, with both presidential and gubernatorial races at stake. The state is seen as a potential opportunity for Biden to win after losing to Trump in 2020.
