Following reports that President Trump expressed interest in pursuing bipartisan health care legislation, Senator Murray urges the Administration to jumpstart negotiations with immediate steps to restore certainty on health care

(Washington, D.C.) –  Today, Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), top Democrat on the Senate health committee, issued the following statement on reports that President Trump expressed interest in working with Democrats on health care legislation.

“It would be a welcome shift for President Trump to stop his health care sabotage and instead work across the aisle to help strengthen families’ health care and lower their costs. If he’s truly serious, he can show it today by committing to take partisan Trumpcare efforts off the table once and for all, announcing he’ll continue out-of-pocket cost reduction payments, and reversing his decision to gut investments in informing people about how to enroll in health care coverage this fall. Each of these steps would go a long way toward giving families needed certainty about their health care, and I look forward to seeing whether he takes them.”
