Rep. O'Halleran Statement on Potential Cuts to Medicare

December 7, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Rep. Tom O’Halleran (AZ-01) released the following statement after reports indicated Speaker Paul Ryan was eyeing cuts to Medicare, a program that more than 1.1 million Arizonans rely on every day:

“Speaker Ryan and other Congressional leaders are completely misguided if they think we will end the Medicare guarantee and leave millions without life-saving care. More than a million Arizonans rely on Medicare, and I will not sit idly by while special interests and a handful of lawmakers work to end it. There is no doubt that we need to rein in wasteful spending, but we cannot do it on the backs of elderly Americans. I urge Speaker Ryan to work on a bipartisan solution to decrease spending and protect care for elderly Americans.”
