Some Republican politicians want to recklessly cut Medicare benefits and repeal $35-a-month insulin. @POTUS and I will not let that happen. We will continue to fight to protect Medicare for generations to come.
The economic empowerment of women is an investment in the future of our country. When we improve the economic status of women, we improve the status of families, communities, and our entire nation.
I am deeply saddened by the one-year anniversary of the ban on girls’ secondary school attendance in Afghanistan, and by the prohibition on university education for Afghan women. We will never stop championing the rights of women and girls around the world.
I applaud Oklahoma and other states that have expanded Medicaid postpartum coverage. And I continue to call on all states to follow their lead.
Put simply: This change will save lives. It will help more women access the health care they need to be safe and healthy. And it will strengthen our families, our communities, and our nation as a whole.
Thanks to our American Rescue Plan, which first made this option available to states, mothers in Oklahoma will now receive checkups, postpartum depression screening for a full year after birth, and additional care that new moms need.
America is facing a maternal mortality crisis. Before, during, and after childbirth, women in our nation are dying at a higher rate than in any other wealthy or developed nation in the world.
In 2021, I called on states across our nation to expand Medicaid postpartum coverage from 2 months to 12 months. Today, Oklahoma became the 30th state to answer the call. Here is why that matters:
Protecting the health and well-being of the people of our nation should not be a partisan issue.
That is why our Administration will continue to use every tool at our disposal to protect and strengthen the Affordable Care Act.
Thank you to the Ted Lasso cast for joining us at the White House for a conversation about mental health.
You have shown audiences around the world what's possible when we ask for help and believe in one another.
We are so proud that more people are enrolled in coverage under the Affordable Care Act than ever before. 40 million people can now book medical appointments, fill their prescriptions, and access the care they need.
The Affordable Care Act is a statement of purpose about the nation we must be: a nation where all people, no matter who they are, where they live, or how much they earn, can access the health care they need.
On the 13th anniversary of the Affordable Care Act, our nation is healthier, safer, and stronger.
The economic empowerment of women is rooted in a core American value — freedom. The freedom to dream with ambition and aspiration. The freedom to determine one’s own future, including the fundamental freedom of every woman to make decisions about her own body.
Our Administration is committed to lifting up women and girls everywhere to secure their basic rights and freedoms.
Because when they can realize their incredible ambition and aspiration, our nation’s future is brighter.
In states with abortion bans, doctors cannot deliver the care their patients need. As a result, some are leaving these states and OBGYN units at hospitals are closing their doors. twitter.com/washingtonpost…
.@SecondGentleman and I extend our warmest wishes to all those honoring the holy month of Ramadan. To Muslims around the world and at home, may this sacred month be a time of great reflection and celebration for you and your loved ones.
Ramadan Kareem—happy Ramadan!
Join President Biden, the First Lady, the Second Gentleman and me as we celebrate Women’s History Month at the White House. twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1…
Our Administration is proud to announce the first-ever U.S. Ocean Climate Action Plan, which will grow coastal economies, protect natural resources, and tackle the climate crisis. twitter.com/POTUS/status/1…
Our Administration is committed to delivering the most ambitious climate and environmental agenda in history.
Today, @POTUS took new actions to protect our nation's public lands and waters so that future generations can enjoy these national treasures.
Under our Administration, we have created more jobs in two years than any Administration has in four. And we know a job is more than a place you work – it is about security and dignity.
Glad to be in this fight with you, @POTUS.
The budget @POTUS put forward demonstrates our values. We are cutting costs for families, growing our nation’s small businesses, and protecting Medicare and Social Security. Because we believe every person in our nation deserves the opportunity to succeed and thrive.
This year alone, more than 20,000 infrastructure projects will be underway as our Administration makes the largest investment in generations to rebuild our nation's infrastructure.

I just vetoed my first bill.
This bill would risk your retirement savings by making it illegal to consider risk factors MAGA House Republicans don't like.
Your plan manager should be able to protect your hard-earned savings — whether Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene likes it or not.
Nowruz marks the spirit of new beginnings. For millions around the world, it is a time to reflect and welcome the arrival of spring. To all who celebrate, Eid-eh Shoma Mobarak – happy Nowruz and happy New Year!
Starting today, we are lowering FHA mortgage insurance payments by nearly 40% for all new homebuyers. That means millions of families will save on average $800 per a year.
Today, I am announcing $197 million to help communities invest in wildfire prevention, preparedness, and resilience.
This funding is part of more than $7 billion we are investing to tackle the rapidly growing threat of wildfires and build wildfire resilient communities.
This year, let Nowruz’s message of hope reach those who need it most. We continue to stand with the women and men of Iran who are inspiring the world. whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/…
I had the honor of celebrating Women’s History Month alongside a phenomenal group of trailblazers.
Together, they are fearlessly using their voices to inspire and empower people everywhere.
