Press Release
Priority is Children’s Health Insurance

WASHINGTON – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) is working with colleagues to quickly re-open the federal government after Republicans in control of the House and Senate failed to reach agreement on a range of issues. He released the following statement:

“We need to open the government as soon as possible with an agreement that fully funds the Children’s Health Insurance Program and meets other important priorities, including extending the Federal Qualified Health Centers and community health centers. Congress should also stop trying to undermine Obamacare.

“Although I’m disappointed we didn’t reach an agreement today, the House is in session on Sunday and I will continue working to resolve these issues and get the government operating again.”
