AARP Thanks Maryland's Representatives for Supporting Bill to Protect People in Medicaid
Date:4/23/2008

Association urges Senators Cardin and Mikulski to quickly pass companion bill and send measure to President

BALTIMORE, April 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AARP thanked the supporters and cosponsors of the Protecting the Medicaid Safety Net Act of 2008, which passed today in the U.S. House of Representatives.

-- Rep. C. A. "Dutch" Ruppersberger [MD-2]

-- Rep. John P. Sarbanes [MD-3]

-- Rep. Albert Russell Wynn [MD-4]

-- Rep. Elijah E. Cummings [MD-7]

-- Rep. Chris Van Hollen [MD-8]

"We're proud that our U.S. Representatives recognized the harm the administration's proposals would have done to people in Maryland's Medicaid program, and we thank them for acting swiftly and with such wide, bipartisan support to stop these cuts," said DeMattos. "We now urge Senators Cardin and Mikulski to vote to protect Medicaid as the Senate considers this measu
