BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Madam Speaker, I rise today to talk about an impending crisis in our health care system. If this Congress can't figure out a way to reimburse the doctors that take care of our older Americans, our follow citizens, our mothers and fathers and grandparents that are on Medicare, this Nation is going to be in a world of hurt. It is time that we put aside petty politics, figure out how we're going to reimburse the doctors and keep the Medicare system going.

There are millions of Americans, certainly hundreds of thousands of seniors in the district that I represent, that depend on Medicare to have their health care needs met. You take away their doctors, you take away any chance they have of getting medical care.

Let's get moving on this and provide a permanent fix to reimbursing the doctors, and let's help our seniors stay on Medicare.
