With the Cassidy-Graham health care repeal effort on life support, No Labels and the Problem Solvers Caucus are resuscitating the push for bipartisan health care reform. Tonight at 8pm ET, No Labels is hosting a citizen tele-town hall with Caucus co-chairs Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ) and Rep. Tom Reed (R-NY), who will be discussing the Caucus’ health care fix and answering questions from citizens.
In late July, the House Problem Solvers Caucus—which has 44 members evenly divided between the parties—released the first and ONLY bipartisan health care fix offered in this Congress, with provisions to stabilize health insurance markets, provide relief for small businesses and prevent premiums from rising for millions of people. Their plan has engendered support from a bipartisan group of governors and senators and represents the last and perhaps only opportunity for Congress to pass substantive health care reform this year.
Reed and Gottheimer were among several Caucus members who met with President Trump earlier this month to discuss their bipartisan health care fix, among other issues.
Tonight’s citizen tele-town hall at 8pm will focus on health care as well as other areas where the Caucus is trying to forge bipartisan cooperation.
“Congress keeps trying and failing to fix health care with only the participation of one party. It is not working,” said No Labels co-founder Andy Bursky. “The only durable solutions on health care will be found with both parties at the table. That’s precisely the solution the Problem Solvers Caucus has provided with its bipartisan health care fix. At tonight’s citizen tele-town hall, the entire country will be reminded that there is common ground on health care and other issues, if only leaders in Washington are willing to look for it.”
