Sen. Menendez emphasized the importance of Medicare through a story about his mother. “For my mother, her healthcare security was Medicare, and without it she wouldn’t have lived with the dignity she deserved in the twilight of her life” Menendez said. Rep. Price only said he’d try to make certain seniors would have access to healthcare at an affordable price.
“Changing Medicare from a commitment and entitlement to vouchers that may hope to create affordability, but doesn’t guarantee that is a fundamental shift in the nature of how we take care of seniors in this country,” Menendez said. “Your answer doesn’t assuage me.”
