Ryan Opposes Bill that Cuts Medicare Benefits, Expands Government-run Health Care
WASHINGTON – First District Congressman Paul Ryan today voted against legislation that exploits the reauthorization of a popular children’s health insurance program to expand government-run, bureaucracy-driven health care and greatly increase already unsustainable entitlement spending. The bill would hurt seniors, working families, and taxpayers through a combination of Medicare cuts and tax increases to pay for this fiscally irresponsible proposal. The House of Representatives passed this bill (H.R. 3162) by a vote of 225-204.
