STATEMENT: Problem Solvers Caucus Co-Chairs on CSR Executive Acti

Oct 13, 2017

In response to recent executive action on Cost Sharing Reduction Payments (CSRs), Congressmen Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) and Tom Reed (NY-23), co-chairs of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, released the following joint statement:

“Congress must step up to stabilize the health care marketplace for American families. The Problem Solvers Caucus released a bipartisan plan that included funding Cost Sharing Reduction payments (CSRs) to prevent premium increases and allow for more options for consumers. It also allowed for more flexibility at the state level, raised the employer mandate, and was fiscally responsible. The real action needed now is for Congress to address the true cost of health care. It’s been proven time and again that partisan solutions do not work, and we are ready to work with the President to get heath care costs down. We won’t all get everything we want, but we can work together, across the aisle, to reduce health care costs, especially by guaranteeing CSR payments to reign back in next year’s premiums. We can’t wait any longer. The time to act is now.”
