Sinema Statement on H.R. 2581

"Today’s bill tweaks current law to ensure that taxpayer dollars won’t be used to fraudulently provide tax credits to ineligible individuals purchasing health insurance on the individual market. Under both current law and this proposed replacement legislation, only legal residents or U.S. citizens can purchase insurance through the exchange and receive credits.

"Congress should be working across the aisle to pass enduring legislation that will increase Arizonan’s access to care and lower the health care costs.  I will continue to work with my colleagues from both parties to fix health care reform and protect hardworking Arizona families."
