Brady, Nunes Petition W&M Chairman for “Medicare for All” Hearing

April 30, 2019 — Press Releases   

Washington, D.C. – Today, the top Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee Kevin Brady (R-TX) and the top Republican on the Ways and Means Health Subcommittee Devin Nunes (R-CA) sent a letter to Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal (D-MA) calling for a Committee hearing on H.R. 1384, the “Medicare for All Act of 2019.”

The lawmakers wrote to Chairman Neal:

“Given that the Committee on Ways and Means has jurisdiction over this bill, we call on you to promptly schedule a hearing on H.R. 1384.”

“Republicans—the party of Medicare Advantage, the Medicare prescription drug benefit, the Children’s Health Insurance Program and the original law protecting coverage at work for people with pre-existing conditions—stand ready to work with you to fix the broken status quo.  A public accounting of H.R. 1384 is necessary to inform the working families and seniors we represent to the risks of their health coverage under this proposal.”
