The bus, called Care Force One, will travel 12,000 miles across the country, with more than 40 events in 21 states. Protect Our Care’s national bus tour is promoting the new benefits available to the American people thanks to the work of President Biden, Senator Joe Manchin and dozens of Democratic lawmakers who championed the Inflation Reduction Act. During each event, Protect Our Care will also call out Republicans like Representatives Alex Mooney, Carole Miller and Senator Shelley Moore Capito for rejecting measures to improve care, lower costs, and address racial inequities in health care for the American people.
