Date:9/30/2009

WASHINGTON, Sept. 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Chairman John Dingell, and Congressman Martin Heinrich joined advocates on behalf of America's seniors for a press conference this afternoon in the Capitol to discuss the benefits of the health insurance reform legislation to senior citizens. Below are the Speaker's opening and closing remarks:

Speaker Pelosi Opening Remarks:

"Good afternoon. Thank you all for being here. It is a very exciting time for us as we are coming down to the final days of deliberation over our health care reform to lower cost, improve quality, extend coverage and to retain choice - if you like what you have you can keep it. But in order to do that, we have to make it secure and cost less. The same holds true for Medicare.

"What an honor it is for me to be here with Chairman Dingell, who when he was a relatively new Member of Congress, a junior Member of Congress, and gaveled the vote on Medicare, passing it 44 years ago. It is pretty exciting. And so we stand here with Mr. Dingell, who presided over that session of Congress now as the Dean of the Congress and the House of Representatives. And with Martin Heinrich from New Mexico, who is a Member of the freshman class and couple of generations of Members in between. We all stand united to preserve Medicare, to make it solvent for many years to come.

"Medicare is our solemn pledge, a pledge of stability for our seniors. They have paid into the system, and we want them to get everything they deserve out of it. What we are promising with our new legislation is the following: better benefits, closing the donut hole and lowering drug costs, ensuring free preventive care and better primary care.

"Number one: better benefits. Two: guaranteed access to your doctors for our seniors and eliminating the 21 percent pay cut your doctor was facing from Medicare reimburse
