AAHSA Statement on Passage of Bennet Health Reform Amendment
Date:12/3/2009

WASHINGTON, Dec. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging (AAHSA) commends the Senate for passing Sen. Michael Bennet's (D-Colo.) amendment, which reassures seniors by protecting guaranteed benefits, and strengthens Medicare by keeping savings within the program.

"With the silver tsunami of retiring baby boomers fast approaching, it's important for health care reform legislation currently before Congress to address Medicare's solvency," said Larry Minnix, CEO of AAHSA. "We applaud Sen. Bennet's common-sense solution to preserve the promise of the Medicare program for many more years."
