Shea-Porter Statement on AARP Endorsement of House Health Care Bill

WASHINGTON, DC Today, Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter released the following statement after the AARP endorsed H.R. 3962, the Affordable Health Care for America Act.  

“The AARP’s endorsement of the Affordable Health Care for America Act highlights the wide-spread support this legislation has throughout the country.  This bill is good for seniors and that is why the AARP has endorsed it.  It will close the Medicare Part D prescription drug donut hole, which affects 1 in 6 American seniors. It will also increase coverage, lower costs, and end discrimination for pre-existing conditions.  I am committed to bringing quality, affordable health care to all the people of New Hampshire. I applaud the AARP for endorsing this historic legislation.”
