Rep. Kind Urges Congressional Leadership to Stay In Session and Work Together to Stabilize Health Care Markets
La Crosse, WI – Today, U.S. Rep. Ron Kind urged Congressional Leadership to stay in session in August to stabilize the health care marketplaces. With the Senate’s failure to pass a health care bill and the ongoing uncertainty, action needs to be taken to provide certainty and ensure Americans continue to have access to health care.
“Over the last six months, Wisconsinites have faced far too much uncertainty when it comes to their health care. We can’t let the uncertainty continue, which is why I am calling on Congressional Leadership to stay in session during August to provide certainty by stabilizing the health insurance markets. It is time to work together and recognize what works in health care, fix what doesn’t, and lower health care costs for all Americans,” said Rep. Kind.
Many of the actions taken by the current administration have created instability and uncertainty in the individual market, thereby increasing costs and making affordability a greater problem. Earlier this month Rep. Kind and several of his colleagues in the New Democrat Coalition proposed a collection of reforms and recommitments to policies that will stabilize the individual market and make health care more affordable for American families.
