Upton joins bipartisan "Problem Solvers" to fix healthcare

WASHINGTON, DC (WHTC-AM/FM) - A bipartisan group of members of the House have banded together to find a way to fix the healthcare system.

St. Joseph Congressman Fred Upton is one of nearly 50 members of the bipartisan "Problem Solvers." The Problem Solvers caucus is led by Republican Tom Reed of New York and and Democrat Josh Gottheimer of NewJersey.

Upton said in a statement Friday:

 “The path forward to fixing the healthcare mess is seeking bipartisan, common-sense common-ground. At the top of our list is stabilizing insurance markets and ensuring lower premiums for patients. Our other goals are simple and what I’ve fought for all along: Protect those with pre-existing conditions and ensure states that expanded Medicaid, like Michigan, are secure. This will safeguard the most vulnerable amongst us so they do not have the rug ripped out from under them. I look forward to being a constructive, bipartisan partner in these efforts. To that effect, I have joined with nearly 50 members of both parties as part of the bipartisan “Problem Solvers” caucus to purse these goals.”
