Real Relief for Seniors and All Americans

WASHINGTON, DC – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) today released the following statement after the House passed HR 4015, the SGR Repeal and Medicare Provider Payment Modernization Act:

“Today the House acted to make a number of much-needed improvements to our nation’s broken health care system. Medicare’s current Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) is anything but sustainable, and this legislation provides the certainty and security that our seniors – and the physicians who treat them – desperately need. By protecting people from Obamacare’s unfair individual mandate tax for five years, we have extended the same relief 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.”
