LATEST SENATOR DONNELLY
After Senate Health Care Vote, Donnelly Continues Call for Bipartisan Action to Strengthen Health Care System
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly released the following statement after the Senate’s latest health care proposal failed to pass the body.
Donnelly said, “I still believe that by working together we can improve our health care system and, at a minimum, Congress and the Administration should do no harm to the millions of Americans’ whose health and economic well-being are at stake. I share the frustration of Hoosiers and Americans who are tired of partisan proposals that fail to address issues with our existing health care system and the continued legislative uncertainty that is undermining the insurance markets. We should do the hard and necessary work to gather the input of doctors, nurses, hospitals, and patients, and work in a bipartisan manner to make coverage more affordable and accessible for Hoosier and American families.”
Donnelly attended a dinner Wednesday evening with a bipartisan group of senators to discuss ways to work together on health care. In May, Donnelly also met with a bipartisan group of senators regarding health care. He continues to be willing to work with his colleagues, Republican and Democrat, to improve our health care system.
