President Biden Rallies for Affordable Care Act in Key Battleground State of North Carolina

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

President Biden and Vice President Harris recently traveled to North Carolina to highlight the 14-year anniversary of the Affordable Care Act and criticize Republicans’ health care policies. The visit coincided with the anniversary, but Biden used the opportunity to speak out against former President Trump and his efforts to limit abortion rights and reduce health care coverage.

In Raleigh, a city that the campaign sees as a potential win in November after narrowly losing the state in 2020, Biden spoke passionately about the importance of not taking progress for granted. He emphasized Republican efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act and cut entitlement programs, as well as their attempts to restrict access to reproductive health services.

Biden specifically called out Trump for his comments on ending Roe v. Wade and his suggestion that women who have abortions should face punishment. He stressed the need for Democrats to move forward and defend democracy, asserting that health care is a right and highlighting the importance of freedom to choose.

North Carolina is expected to be a key battleground in the 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.
