Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty (CT-5) today released the following statement:

“Millions of American families can breathe easier today, and I’m profoundly relieved on their behalf. But I’m not celebrating. There are still real problems in our health care system that we need to fix. It’s time for a bipartisan approach that’s focused on serving the American people, not on scoring political points. Let's work together on ways to lower premiums and deductibles, reduce drug costs, and expand access to quality care. It’s what the American people deserve. The time has long passed for assigning blame. It’s time to start fixing and healing – both health care and Congress.”
