As Chairman of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, and Science (CJS), I issued the following statement about a letter signed to urge U.S. House Speaker Ryan, Majority Leader McCarthy, and Majority Whip Scalise to protect and maintain affordable Medicare Part D benefits for seniors.
Among the many problems the Affordable Care Act created is a looming Medicare Part D increase that threatens seniors’ ability to access and pay for medications vital to their well-being.
Many seniors live on fixed incomes, and I’m committed to protecting Medicare Part D and taking the necessary action in Congress to make certain that their ability to pay for lifesaving medications is not put in jeopardy.
Full text of the letter is here and below.
