Health care is a bipartisan issue and it is time we started treating it as one. Hopefully we continue to see Washington lawmakers respond to the drumbeat of my fellow governors nationwide urging Congress to fix what’s not working with our health care system.
A bipartisan priority should be stabilizing the marketplace and making quality health insurance affordable. Insurers cannot remain in a holding pattern while cuts are threatened. And Americans whose health is at risk depend on us to work above the chaos. We need to find ways to expand choices that improve quality but also can control cost.
