Washington, DC – Today, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) issued the following statement after the Obama Administration announced how it will implement the over $300 billion in cuts to Medicare Advantage included in the President’s health care law.
“Americans across the country are feeling the pain of ObamaCare, and today the Administration confirmed that seniors will be the next victims of this law. Despite this Administration’s continued attempts to mask over $300 billion in cuts, the hard truth is now apparent – millions of seniors who rely on the Medicare Advantage program will lose the plans, benefits, doctors and financial protection they currently have.
“This law has failed millions of Americans and brought uncertainty to families, employers, workers, and now our nation’s seniors who depend on Medicare Advantage. It is time for the President and his Administration to work with Congress on real solutions to preserve the care and benefits seniors rely on.”
