Rep. Burgess and I Discuss the Recently Released Medicare Trustees Report

June 3, 2011

Earlier today, I joined Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (TX-26) on the House floor for a discussion on the current and future challenges America faces with the rising cost of health care. Rep. Burgess and I serve as the co-chairs for the Congressional Healthcare Caucus, a caucus dedicated to educating other Members of Congress and fellow Americans on the issues surrounding health care policy. Much of our discussion focused on the recently released Medicare Trustees Report, which shows that Medicare will become insolvent even sooner than expected.
