WASHINGTON, D.C.—In response to today’s U.S. Senate vote on the motion to proceed to consider a health care bill that would cut Medicare and Medicaid and impose an Age Tax on older Americans, AARP Executive Vice President Nancy LeaMond released the following statement:
Over 575,000 Arkansans rely on Medicare to help pay for their prescription drugs, doctor visits and hospitalizations. AARP Arkansas volunteer Joy Crow explains how the new healthcare bill weakens Medicare by reducing spending, hastening Medicare’s insolvency and increasing premiums. Instead of giving a windfall to pharmaceutical companies, Congress should do more to reduce the burden of high prescription drug costs!
The American Health Care Act, which narrowly passed the U.S. House of Representatives on May 4 and is awaiting action by the U.S. Senate, would make health care unaffordable and inaccessible for millions of Americans—including hundreds of thousands of Arkansans.
