As a member who represents a district with more Medicare beneficiaries than almost any other district in California, I feel that it is especially critical to ensure that these beneficiaries have access to the care and medications they need. Medicare Part D plays a critical role in fulfilling the need for access to prescription drugs. I am proud to have been a stalwart supporter of this legislation as it moved through Congress. Millions of seniors that had no prescription drug coverage now have access to these often life-saving medications. Seniors are paying less and receiving more. I am proud of the work that this Congress has done to meet the needs of our seniors. I will continue to work with my colleagues to ensure that health care remains at the forefront of the agenda in Washington.
