The Health Subcommittee held a hearing on "Medicare and Seniors" on Wednesday, July 13, 2011, at 9:00 a.m. in 2123 Rayburn House Office Building. "I regret to observe that this hearing today is a very partisan and very hypocritical exercise. It is partisan because this is another battle in the war waged since January by the Republicans to tear down the Affordable Care Act. When the Republicans passed their repeal bill through the House in January, we were promised that a Republican replacement would be right behind it. But we are now in July, and we have seen absolutely no progress on any positive Republican ideas for addressing our nation's problems in health care: skyrocketing costs, 50 million Americans without insurance, and uneven quality of care." - Ranking Member Waxman
