WASHINGTON, DC – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) today issued the following statement following the release of Department of Health and Human Services regulations that will hurt seniors enrolled in the Medicare Advantage program:
"This latest broken promise under Obamacare is especially unfair. America's seniors worked hard for their entire lives to enjoy the benefits they've earned through programs like Medicare Advantage. Now those hard-earned benefits are under threat because of the President's health care law, as millions of seniors stand to lose access to the doctors they trust and the care they need. This is an egregious breach of the public trust and unfairly targets some of our most vulnerable citizens, both in Eastern Washington and across the country. We ask the President to join Congress to remedy this situation as quickly as possible, and honor our commitment to America's seniors."
