Congressman Peter Roskam (IL-06) released the latest installment of Ask Peter today, a frequent video conversation with Sixth District residents about issues important to them. In this segment, Congressman Roskam answers an email from Ron Keifer from Darien who asked what the government is doing to eliminate wasteful spending.
"This week the House Ways & Means Committee has introduced the Protecting Integrity in Medicare (PIMA) Act, which includes a number of proposals that I've been actively working on for the past three years to bring technology in as it relates to finding scammers in Medicare.
"Also, I've been working with Congressman Ted Deutch from Florida on a bipartisan piece of legislation called the Stop Scams Act, similarly situated to make sure that we protect Medicare and other healthcare programs to ensure they are there for our seniors."
Ask Peter videos are available at roskam.house.gov, Facebook, Twitter, and via press release. The videos are sent to constituents via e-mail, Facebook, or Twitter, depending on how they contacted the Roskam office.
