Jul 13, 2017
Report Reinforces Need for Reforms to Ensure Longevity of Medicare Program

WASHINGTON, DC – House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden (R-OR) and Health Subcommittee Chairman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX) today issued the following statement regarding the 2017 Medicare Trustees Report.

“Medicare is a critical program in Oregon, Texas, and all across the country. It’s why House Republicans have sought solutions to improve benefits and put this program on a more fiscally sustainable path, making reforms that will help both today’s – and tomorrow’s – beneficiaries,” said Walden and Burgess. “Today’s report reinforces the serious nature of Medicare’s uncertain future, and is a timely reminder that Congress should work in a bipartisan fashion to ensure its solvency.”
