The NPRChamber Opposes Medicare Plan by Speaker of the House


Washington, DC (September 20, 2019) – The National Puerto Rican Chamber of Commerce issued the following statement opposing Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s plan to alter Medicare:

“Speaker Pelosi’s plan would fundamentally upend the incentives needed within our health care system to research and discover new, innovative treatments for patients. Instituting onerous price controls and administrative barriers to treatment may diminish the quality of care that patients have come to expect from the Medicare program. Our health care system’s greatest asset remains its leadership driving medical progress forward. The NPRChamber favors policies that encourage innovation, and opposes those that limit innovation and development within the healthcare sector.  For our communities across the U.S. mainland and in Puerto Rico, we are asking Speaker Pelosi to reconsider real solutions that promote stability and safety for American consumers.”
