Oct 17, 2017

WASHINGTON – In response to the announcement of a bipartisan health care deal in the Senate, Problem Solvers Caucus Co-Chairs Rep. Tom Reed (R-NY) and Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ) released the following joint statement:

“For months now, the Problem Solvers Caucus has been working to find a bipartisan solution to help stabilize the individual marketplace, reduce premiums and costs, and increase choice and state flexibility — in a fiscally responsible manner. This summer, our Caucus — 23 Democrats and 23 Republicans — passed a bipartisan framework and spent August and September working closely with Senators Alexander and Murray, governors from both parties, and others to adopt our bipartisan solution.

“We want to commend Senators Murray and Alexander on their breakthrough today. It aligns closely with our framework and we look forward to working closely with Congress and the White House to pass bipartisan legislation.”
