Congressman Tim Ryan Responds to Senate Extension of the Heath Coverage Tax Credit (HCTC)

Apr 4, 2014 Issues: Helping Working Families, Health Care

Congressman Tim Ryan today issued the following response to the Senate Finance Committee passage of an amendment extending the Health Coverage Tax Credit (HCTC):

“I commend the Senate Finance Committee’s vote, which is important not only to many Delphi Salaried Retirees of my District, but many others across the country. We need to help those who have lost pensions and benefits and make sure they can afford adequate health care coverage. “

“I have introduced H.R. 2783 in 2013, which will provide continued eligibility for the health care tax credit, and I call upon Speaker Boehner and Chairman Camp to make a strong effort to bring this legislation to the House floor for a vote. I look forward to working closely with Senator Brown, Senator Portman and Congressman Turner on this important issue.”
