Wyden Statement on Biden Proposal to Secure Medicare for the Next Generation

Washington, D.C. — Senate Finance Committee Chair Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today issued a statement:

“President Biden’s plan is proof positive that Medicare’s guarantee of quality health care for older Americans can be secured for the next generation without raising the eligibility age, cutting benefits, or handing over the program to big insurance companies,” Wyden said. “If Republicans want to have a debate on federal spending, it is now their responsibility to show their plan to the American people, instead of threatening to hold the nation’s economy hostage while making vague demands.”
