Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC - Today, Congressman Tom O’Halleran (AZ-01) and members of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus sent a letter urging Congressional leaders from both parties to work on a bipartisan solution that brings down health care costs for the American people.

“If we are going to get serious about fixing our broken health care system and bringing down the rising costs of premiums and care, we must work together,” said Rep. O’Halleran in a statement. “It is clear that partisanship is not working, and the American people cannot wait any longer. We owe it to them to bring our best ideas to the table and find a compromise that provides relief.”

Earlier this year, the Problem Solvers Caucus, a bipartisan group of 43 members of Congress, released a list of principles to lower premiums and stabilize the health insurance marketplace.

“As a Caucus, we recognize that American lives are depending upon Democrats and Republicans to work together to accomplish health care reforms. Earlier this month, we stood with Governors from both parties on Capitol Hill to show that we can set aside partisanship to provide relief to the American families, individuals and small businesses suffering in an uncertain marketplace,” the bipartisan letter reads. “The Problem Solvers Caucus continues to stand ready to work for the American people and build on the consensus we started. We must strive for bipartisan solutions to stabilize the individual marketplace, provide relief to job-creating small businesses, cut out of pocket costs and improve care for all Americans.”
