Kasich supports responsible reform, not Graham-Cassidy
The Graham-Cassidy amendment pending in the U.S. Senate would significantly cut federal funding that supports recent health care coverage gains. There is confusion about the actual impact of Graham-Cassidy because consideration of the amendment has been rushed. For example, the Congressional Budget Office has not had time to assess the loss of coverage that would result or the impact on the federal deficit. Governor John Kasich has been clear that reform is necessary -- Ohio is a national leader in health care reforms that control costs -- but the current effort in Congress to rush a reform that is not yet fully understood is risky and in the wrong direction.
