The Latino Coalition: Speaker Nancy Pelosi's Healthcare Plan Introduces a Myriad of New Potential Roadblocks

WASHINGTON, Nov. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Latino Coalition (TLC) released the below statement regarding the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's proposal to address patient healthcare costs:

"While we agree with Speaker Pelosi on the need to address rising patient healthcare costs, her approach may inadvertently harm the very foundation of Medicare. This program has successfully served seniors for years by giving access to the most innovative medications on the market. Unfortunately, Speaker Pelosi's plan may upend these strengths by introducing a myriad of new potential roadblocks to treatment. From a convoluted plan tying US healthcare costs to those in other countries and new bureaucrats empowered to make treatment decisions on behalf of patients, this plan mistakes action for progress. Congress should look to empower patients and their doctors with choice, not arbitrary barriers to the care they rely on," said TLC Chairman and former U.S. Small Business Administrator, Hector Barreto.
