Fleming Warns That President Obama Is Not Serious About Entitlement Reform

Congressman John Fleming, M.D. (LA-4) issued the following statement after the release of the Medicare and Social Security Trustees’ annual report:

“Maybe now President Obama and his liberal allies will get serious about entitlement reform. The Trustees’ projections show a shortened lifespan for Social Security and sound another urgent warning that Medicare is spiraling toward a crisis. The president’s Trustees also claim that Obamacare is somehow extending the life of Medicare. That idea would be laughable if the health care of millions of seniors was not at stake. The president already took money away from Medicare savings to foot some of the massive bill for Obamacare.

“The population is aging and health care costs are rising. Obamacare failed to address those issues and that means Medicare is still facing insolvency. It’s time for the administration to stop spinning its do-nothing approach and finally recognize that Medicare is on an unsustainable path. I and my fellow House Republicans continue to offer meaningful steps toward Medicare reform while Washington liberals have little to offer but more posturing and name-calling.”

Dr. John Fleming is Chairman of the Natural Resources Subcommittee on Fisheries, Wildlife, Oceans and Insular Affairs and is a member of the House Armed Services Committee. He is a physician and small businessowner and represents the 4th Congressional District of Louisiana.
