MN-02 Rep. Angie Craig has been named Co-Chair of the New Democrat Coalition Healthcare Task Force. The Healthcare Task Force is responsible for developing policy proposals to reduce the cost of and access to healthcare for all Americans.

“I’m excited to help lead the New Democrat Coalition Healthcare Task Force. I grew up for part of my childhood without access to health insurance. I know we must find ways to reduce the cost of health insurance, including premiums and out-of-pocket costs, as well as lower the actual cost of health care,” said Rep. Angie Craig. “I look forward to working with my colleagues to put all ideas on the table to make progress on one of the biggest challenges facing Americans today.”

Rep. Craig worked in two healthcare manufacturing companies for over 20 years and was responsible for the company’s employer-sponsored health plan in the United States and in multiple other countries.

The
New Democrat Coalition is made up of over 100 forward-thinking Democrats who are committed to pro-economic growth, pro-innovation, and fiscally responsible policies. New Democrats are a solutions-oriented coalition seeking to change partisan approaches to governing. New Democrats believe the challenges ahead are too great for Members of Congress to refuse to cooperate purely out of partisanship.
