Ryan’s Report

Share

Welcome to Ryan’s Report, and thank you for reading. During the August District Work Period, the U.S. House of Representatives is not in session, which means no votes are called and no committee hearings are held. It has been a busy time around the District with constituent meetings, site visits, and town halls,but I first want to provide you with an important healthcare update.

Problem Solvers Caucus: Refocus the Healthcare Debate

This past week I announced my work on healthcare reform as a member of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus. We are working to refocus the healthcare debate on patient-centered solutions that can achieve bipartisan consensus in Congress.

In addition to having the opportunity to speak with Fox News, and I also joined MSNBC with my colleague, Rep. Tom Suozzi (D-NY), to discuss our work. We are both members of the Problem Solvers Caucus and had a bipartisan discussion on our proposal to address some of the impending challenges to stabilizing the health insurance marketplace.

You may have also seen my op-ed in the Philadelphia Inquirer, 3 ideas from the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus to immediately help healthcare reform, which discusses the caucus’s proposal:

  • First, end the uncertainty surrounding the federal government’s Cost Sharing Reduction payments (CSRs).
  • Second, let’s refocus the broader debate on health care to encourage innovation and enhance flexibility at the state level.
  • Third, many of the provisions of the Affordable Care Acthave negatively impacted job creators — and, in fact, many workers — without an appreciable impact on affordable access to care. We should realign the ACA’s definition of “small business” under the employer mandate with other federal programs — and reestablish the employee expectation of the traditional work week.
