Bipartisanship Necessary for Medicare Bill

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell released the following statement Wednesday regarding negotiations on the Medicare bill:

"After many weeks of positive discussions, I'm disappointed the Chairman of the Finance Committee chose to walk away from bipartisan Medicare negotiations. The Senate process is such that it takes 60 votes to move legislation forward. It is unfortunate the Democrats have chosen a partisan path instead of continuing to work with Senator Grassley and the Republican Conference on a bipartisan compromise. We remain open to working with Democrats to ensure we pass a Medicare bill by the June 30th deadline."
