Seniors Spoke Out…and we were heard!

Earlier this year, I wrote to seniors about a harmful proposal that threatened our Medicare coverage. The proposal sought to change one part of Medicare – Part B – by allowing the government to interfere with decisions that should be left between us and our doctors. But seniors spoke out…and we were heard!

The Seniors Speak Out community sent letters urging members of Congress to protect a program that works for us. I’m proud to report that Congress listened!

Many representatives from both sides of the aisle told the Administration they were concerned about the size and scope of the proposal and its potential to impact our access to care.

Despite our letters and efforts from our members of Congress, this harmful proposal is still on the table. These harmful changes to Medicare must be stopped. Please join me on Twitter to thank our supporters in Congress. Together our voice is strong and the fight to protect Medicare is ongoing.
