LATEST SENATOR KING
PORTLAND, ME – U.S. Senator Angus King (I-Maine) today joined with health care professionals, providers, and advocates at the Fore River Campus of Mercy Hospital in Portland to discuss a path forward for comprehensive, bipartisan health care policies that will make health care more affordable and more accessible for people in Maine.
“We just had a longer hearing on health care in Portland, Maine than has happened this year in the United States Senate on a plan to affect one sixth of the U.S. economy and tens of millions of people,” Senator King said. “Listening to the health care professionals at Mercy today only underscored the not-so-radical idea that we need bipartisan legislation and we should have hearings and take into consideration the real-world experiences of people on the front lines. I don’t know one person in the Senate who will tell you that the ACA is perfect, but I do know there are a lot of us who want to get the fixes right.”
