8 Governors Issue Bipartisan Proposal to Strengthen Affordable Care Act

Eight governors in key states – Republicans John Kasich from Ohio and Brian Sandoval from Nevada, Democrats John Bel Edwards from Louisiana, John Hickenlooper from Colorado, Tom Wolf from Pennsylvania, Terance McAuliffe from Virginia, and Steve Bullock from Montana, and Independent Bill Walker from Alaska – have issued a bipartisan proposal to strengthen the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

The governors call for both Congressional and executive actions to stabilize the health insurance marketplaces, to support both health plans in providing and individuals in accessing affordable health insurance through those marketplaces, and to continuing to provide flexibility to states for innovation within the requirements of the ACA. Many of these proposals have broad support among both health care providers and consumer advocates, although not all of them were included in the House and Senate bills to “repeal and replace the ACA” that ultimately stalled in the Senate in July.

    Ignatius-

    Always happy to get your posts.

    FYI, Edwards from LA is a Democrat. Walker from Alaska is now an independent.

    Peace,
