  • Problem Solvers Caucus Reaches Bipartisan Agreement to Try to Stabilize Individual Market

    “For too long, health care has been viewed as a fiercely partisan battleground, but the Problem Solvers Caucus has shown that it is possible to forge cooperation and fight through the gridlock. We all heard what John Mccain said -- it's time for bipartisan solutions,” said Problem Solvers Caucus Co-Chair Josh Gottheimer. “And with premiums increasing by 25% this year in my home state of New Jersey, it’s clear this bipartisan effort to stabilize the health insurance marketplace and lower premiums for everyone is sorely needed. This plan will help small businesses and families, especially those with preexisting conditions, by making permanent cost sharing reductions while protecting Medicaid for seniors and those struggling with substance abuse disorders. I thank my colleagues for their hard work and good faith efforts that got us to this point, and I look forward to working with them going forward to improve our health care system.” Read more

We have spent decades kicking the can down the road when it comes to our roads and rail, and now we are stuck cleaning up the crumbling pieces. It's crushing our economy, our commutes, our productivity, and our time with our families; it's inexcusable. I will continue to fight on a bipartisan basis to move forward Gateway and other top-priority infrastructure projects across the country,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer. Read more
