Statement from Jim Casey, President of ProtectSeniors.Org on the healthcare plan:
“As an organization dedicated to enhancing the economic security and quality of life for America’s seniors, ProtectSeniors.Org cannot support the current form of the American Health Care Act. First and foremost, any new healthcare bill must restore the $700 billion taken away from Medicare to pay for the Affordable Care Act.
Congress ought to be focused on preserving Medicare and Social Security and ensuring that private sector pensions and earned healthcare benefits for millions of older Americans are protected.
For our part, ProtectSeniors.Org is the only organization that has a plan to solve the healthcare crisis for a large group of older Americans which is also fiscally responsible and would come at no cost to the taxpayer. The Administration and Congress should go back to the drawing board and together draft a new health care plan that better supports seniors and their health care needs.”
