  (Ms. KUSTER of New Hampshire asked and was given permission to 
address the House for 1 minute.)
  Ms. KUSTER of New Hampshire. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to discuss our 
work in the House to advance innovative solutions to improve access to 
affordable healthcare for people in my district in New Hampshire and 
across the country.
  Over the past 2 weeks I have had the opportunity to visit with 
hospitals and providers throughout my district to discuss the 
challenges facing healthcare in my State. I have heard consistently 
that the efforts of the Trump administration to sabotage the Affordable 
Care Act are causing serious anxiety for patients and healthcare 
providers.
  The American people have made clear they want Democrats and 
Republicans to work together to improve access to affordable healthcare 
and to abandon the partisanship that has seen protections for 
individuals with preexisting conditions threatened and access to 
healthcare restricted.
  I am excited that next week the House will pass innovative 
legislation that will have a real impact on the lives of hardworking 
families, including my bill to protect people with preexisting 
conditions. We are advancing pragmatic solutions and stabilizing and 
strengthening the Affordable Care Act.
