McMorris Rodgers: Eastern Washington Seniors Deserve Access to Physicians

WASHINGTON, DC Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05), Chair of the House Republican Conference, released the following statement after the House passed HR 4015, the Sustainable Growth Rate Repeal and Medicare Provider Payment Modernization Act

"Whenever I’m home in Eastern Washington, I hear from too many seniors who fear the uncertainty over their Medicare coverage. Medicare's current Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) is anything but sustainable, and this legislation provides the certainty and security that our Eastern Washington seniors – and the physicians who treat them – desperately need. By protecting people from Obamacare's unfair individual mandate tax for five years, the House has extended the same relief to Eastern Washington and to all Americans that the President has already given to businesses with big checkbooks. It's time for real solutions, real fairness, and real relief – and this legislation does just that."
