Washington, D.C. – Congressman John Faso (R-Kinderhook) issued the following statement today after offering questions to an expert witness panel at the Budget Committee’s ACA hearing:

“During the House Budget Committee hearing today, we heard from four experts in the healthcare field who shared their views. These views were remarkably similar in outlook as to the regulatory and statutory fixes which we need to pursue. I was particularly interested in the witnesses’ views on ‘age-banding ratios’ which are contained in the healthcare law. Each witness referred to this factor as one which drives up costs for young people, often making insurance unaffordable. Failure to more rationally price insurance for young people has dramatically reduced access to affordable care, contributing to the structural challenges which have beset the ACA for years.”
