Sam Rasoul on Medicare

Rasoul Praises House for Passing Medicare Bill

Roanoke, VA – Sam Rasoul, the Democratic nominee for the 6th Congressional District, is applauding the House for passing a new Medicare Bill, HR 6331. HR 6331 eliminates the 10.6 percent cut in Medicare payments to physicians scheduled to take place at the beginning of July and creates a 1.1 percent pay increase starting in 2009.
“I am pleased that the House held firm to fully funding Medicare so as not to adversely impact working-class families who are struggling especially with current energy costs,” Rasoul stated.
“The current economic downtown is making it difficult enough for many Americans to make ends meet without having to add additional worries about decreasing health care coverage. Medicare patients will be able to continue being treated by their physicians without worrying about the possibility of refusal.”
