Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement on a proposal of insurance marketplace stabilization measures and changes to the Affordable Care Act unveiled by a bipartisan coalition of Members today:
“Democrats have long stood ready for constructive discussions with Republicans on how to update and improve the Affordable Care Act, stabilize the marketplaces, and continue to drive down families’ health costs.
“While the President angrily threatens to raise Americans’ premiums, Congress has a responsibility to work together in a bipartisan fashion for the good of the American people. The Republican Leadership should finally move past repeal, follow the example of their Members releasing some proposals with Democrats today, and come to the table for serious bipartisan conversations.”
