Pelosi Statement on Senate Vote on Medicare Improvements Act
Date:7/9/2008

WASHINGTON, July 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Speaker Nancy Pelosi today issued the following statement upon Senate passage of Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act of 2008 by a vote of 69 to 30.

"The Senate's vote today is a remarkable testament to the powerful voice of America's seniors, who made it clear that they would not allow the Bush Administration's stubborn insistence on bloated, unnecessary subsidies for insurance companies stand in the way of quality, affordable, and reliable health care under Medicare.

"I join our Senate colleagues in welcoming back Senator Ted Kennedy, who was able to vote for this legislation despite his courageous battle against cancer. His vote today demonstrates his unwavering and remarkable commitment to one of his top priorities - improving health care in this country. That stands in stark contrast to the one senator who missed today's vote, Senator John McCain.

"The overwhelming and bipartisan votes in the House and the Senate - both by veto-proof margins - send a clear message to President Bush that our efforts to strengthen Medicare for our seniors should become law, with or without his signature."
