Biden and Harris Criticize Republicans’ Health Care Policies during NC Trip to Mark ACA Anniversary

Biden aims to highlight differences between his health care plan and Trump’s in North Carolina.

Vice President Harris and President Biden made a trip to North Carolina to commemorate the 14th anniversary of the Affordable Care Act’s passing. The visit coincided with the anniversary, but the main focus of the trip was to criticize Republicans’ health care policies.

During his speech in Raleigh, Biden emphasized the importance of not taking progress for granted and highlighted Republican efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act and cut entitlement programs. He also used the opportunity to call out former President Trump for his comments on ending Roe v. Wade and his suggestion that women who have abortions should face punishment.

Biden emphasized that health care is a right and highlighted the importance of freedom to choose, asserting that women should have access to safe and legal abortion services. He also talked about how important it is to defend democracy by standing up against Republican attempts to limit access to healthcare.

North Carolina is seen as a key battleground in upcoming elections, with close races for both the presidency and governorship. A recent poll showed Biden closing the gap with Trump in North Carolina, indicating a competitive race in the state.
