Arizona Capitol Times: Sinema, Biggs offer views on health care changes
April 18, 2017
The Arizona Capitol Times writes,
U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, who joined Biggs in a forum sponsored by the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce, said the original bill rolled out by House Speaker Paul Ryan, the American Health Care Act, was “bad.”
“It was basically Obamacare but worse,” she said.
Sinema, a member the moderate Blue Dog Coalition, said bipartisanship is the most effective way to pass health care reform.
“If (Ryan) wants to get something done, there is a group of Blue Dogs that are willing to do this,” Sinema said. “And we are fiscally conservative Democrats that are willing to find market-based solutions, and I think it would make a lot of sense for him to come and talk to us.”
