Update from Governor Kasich:
I wanted to send you a short update about my visit with President Trump and members of his staff to discuss the lessons we’ve learned in Ohio about healthcare and how this can be very helpful as Congress looks to reform Obamacare.
The President was generous with his time as we also discussed education & job training, the need for the administration to speak with one voice on national security issues, trade, how we can do more to prevent human trafficking, the opioid drug abuse that is straining our communities and the high costs of prescription medicine and various remedies to this growing problem.
I’m looking forward to continuing the conversation about healthcare reform, at the President’s invitation, with HHS Secretary Price and White House Chief of Staff Priebus on Saturday. I will also meet with fellow governors to discuss these reforms.
If you’d like to watch a short clip from my remarks to the media after my meeting at the White House, you can watch it on C-SPAN (here).
