Congresswoman Robin Kelly hosted a Solutions Only Congressional Field Inquiry on health care at the Dirksen Federal Courthouse in Chicago.
"The goal of today's inquiry is to move beyond the partisan rhetoric and get to solutions that will make health care affordable and accessible for all Illinois families," said Congresswoman Kelly. "Families are tired of the name-calling and finger pointing; they want solutions and it's our obligation to find them."
A panel of six experts, representing a range of providers and advocates, provided evidence and answered questions from policymakers and attendees.
Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) and Congresswoman Karen Bass (D-CA) joined the inquiry, as did staff from the offices of Senator Dick Durbin, Senator Tammy Duckworth and Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi.
