LATEST SENATOR DONNELLY
Indianapolis, Ind. —U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly released the following statement after the Administration today announced a health care executive order.
Donnelly said, “The President has said all along that it’s his goal for our health care system to explode, and for the last 10 months the Administration has actively worked to undermine the law at every turn. My top priority is to stabilize the insurance markets, and the best way to do that is to work together to strengthen the health care law. I’m very concerned that the continued desire to push partisan or go-it-alone plans will have the opposite effect, causing many Hoosiers to pay even more for their health care.”
On Wednesday, Donnelly again called for the Administration to commit to providing stability to health insurance markets and working together on bipartisan solutions to reduce health care costs, expand access to care, and strengthen the health care system. Following up on his previous and unanswered letter to Hoosier Seema Verma —Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) — Donnelly wrote to Verma Wednesday, reiterating that the Administration should do no harm and work on constructive, bipartisan efforts. He urged the Administration to make a public commitment to continue Cost Sharing Reduction payments in a letter on July 31 to Verma, whom he partnered with to establish Indiana’s bipartisan HIP 2.0 program through the health care law.
