LATEST SENATOR TESTER
(Big Sandy, Mont.)—U.S. Senator Jon Tester today is urging Republicans and Democrats to unite and work together to lower the cost of health care for all Montanans.
Tester has been calling on both parties to work together on health care legislation and has sponsored numerous bills to lower the cost of health insurance premiums, stabilize insurance markets, protect access to Medicaid, and bring down the cost of prescription drugs.
Tester is now demanding his bills get an immediate hearing after the Senate’s attempt to upend the health care system failed on a bipartisan vote.
“The current system needs to be fixed and that’s only going to happen if Republicans and Democrats sit down and work together on solutions that lower the cost of health care for everyone,” Tester said. “I have brought some real health care improvement bills to the table, and I’m committed to finding more solutions, but I cannot and will not vote for anything that raises costs, kicks people off their health plans, and closes rural hospitals.”
