Medicare

f t # e
 

I have listened carefully to seniors across my district, and have heard their thoughtful comments about Medicare. Your concerns were incorporated into the budget bill I voted for in the 114th Congress, and for that reason our legislation did not change Medicare for anyone 55 and older.

However, Medicare will go bankrupt if we do nothing. We in Congress have a moral obligation to save this program for future generations. We cannot continue down this road. I supported PROTECTING Medicare by ensuring no changes for those in or near retirement, and PRESERVING Medicare with true choice and competition for future generations.

We also need to root out waste, fraud and abuse from the Medicare system. The chief actuary for Medicare has said that as much as $150 billion in the program is wasted yearly. Allowing fraud and abuse to continue is wrong and is why the plan I supported helps to stop it.

As Congress continues to debate the future of the health care system, I will continue working to ensure promises to our seniors are kept and Medicare is protected and preserved.
