After months spinning its wheels, Washington is finally abandoning the fantasy that either party can impose major reforms without reaching across the aisle.
With the release of Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and Senator Patty Murray’s (D-WA) compromise health care fix, both houses of Congress now have in hand a durable bipartisan solution to ensure access to affordable and quality care for the American people. Like the Problem Solvers health care fix released in July, this compromise would both ensure that Americans are able to purchase health care through the marketplace and provide states with greater flexibility within the health care exchanges.
But while the release of the Alexander-Murray compromise represents an important step forward, Congress has much more work to do. The Alexander-Murray compromise suggests that negotiators from the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives should sit down to pursue a bipartisan solution together.
Contact your senators, urging them to get on board with this bipartisan health care momentum.
