The situation has never been more dire.feedback

Jul 14 2017 - Social security

Congress must act to ensure the long-term fiscal viability and sustainability and survival of Medicare and Social Security. There are a great many ways that the situation can be addressed. The bottom line is that it must be addressed.feedback

Jul 13 2017

Thanks to these efforts, fewer criminals will be able to exploit our nation's opioid crisis for their own gain.feedback

Jul 11 2017 - Obamacare

Washington does not have all the answers when it comes to healthcare. State Innovation Waivers are just one step of many we are taking to inaugurate a new era of state flexibility and innovation in healthcare, and we look forward to more productive work with our state partners.feedback

Jul 10 2017 - Obamacare

Congress must act now to repair the damage Obamacare has inflicted and put in place a patient-centered system that is responsive to the needs of individuals and families, not the demands of Washington.feedback

Jul 07 2017 - Wiretapping

Having known Dr. Fitzgerald for many years, I know that she has a deep appreciation and understanding of medicine, public health, policy and leadership – all qualities that will prove vital as she leads the CDC in its work to protect America's health 24/7.feedback

Jul 03 2017 - Obamacare

Absolutely not. The president's held multiple meetings within the White House itself, with physicians, with small-business groups, with other folks who have been harmed by Obamacare, with patients, individual stakeholders from across this land who tell him and have told us repeatedly that the current system is collapsing. And that's what the president talks about.feedback

Jul 03 2017 - Obamacare

No, we don't think so. We think Leader McConnell and his senators within the Senate are working to try to get this piece of legislation on track, so we look forward to hopefully coming back after this July 4 recess and getting the work done.feedback

Jul 02 2017 - Trump Presidency

We think that Leader McConnell and his senators within the Senate are working to try to get this piece of legislation on track.feedback

America faces an urgent crisis in its health care system. Costs are skyrocketing and choices are disappearing on the individual and small-group markets. Many people now confront the real challenge of having no choice in their health coverage.feedback

If the baseline is today's amount of money being spent on Medicaid, the president's budget provides for an increase.feedback

Jun 25 2017 - Trump Presidency

It's a moral action that must be taken.feedback

Jun 25 2017 - Trump Presidency

The premise to that question is that the CDC budget right now is exactly where it needs to be and there are no efficiencies to be gained. I would suggest to you that there are efficiencies that can be had.feedback

Jun 25 2017 - Trump Presidency

The United States has an incredibly important role to play in terms of world health. I believe we are the leader.feedback

Jun 25 2017 - Affordable Care Act

Yes. The CBO does a great job on budget; they do a relatively poor job of what the coverage consequences of a healthcare plan are. Their ability–anybody's ability–to predict what human behavior is going to be without looking at the entire construct, is difficult. I would suggest to you that the numbers the CBO had before with the ACA, and the numbers they have now, are not accurate. My sense is that the Senate bill gets us closer to those principles compared to the current law. That is the goal of the plan.feedback

Jun 25 2017

We're not pulling the rug out from under anybody.feedback

Jun 23 2017

We've got prices going up, we've got deductibles going up, premiums going up. We've got people that have an insurance card but they don't have any care because they can't afford the deductible.feedback

Jun 20 2017

Let me respectfully suggest ... that the programs that are out there by and large are not working. We are losing more Americans today than we did last year. ... Clearly we're moving in the wrong direction.feedback

Jun 19 2017

Keith Hall will bring an impressive level of economic expertise and experience to the Congressional Budget Office. His vast understanding of economic and labor market policy will be invaluable to the work of C.B.O. and the important role it will continue to play as Congress seeks to enact policies that support a healthy and growing economy.feedback

Jun 12 2017 - Trump Presidency

I can't thank you enough for the privileges you've given me and the leadership that you've shown.feedback

May 24 2017

But it also means taking a clear-eyed view of what needs to change for it to fulfil that most important mission - ensuring a rapid and focused response to potential global health crises.

May 22 2017

What's right for one person isn't necessarily right for another person.feedback

May 19 2017 - Trump Presidency

We're not looking to achieve an arbitrary financial goal or workforce numbers. We're certainly not gunning for specific programs or agencies.feedback

May 16 2017 - Obamacare

The failure of the individual marketplaces under Obamacare is driving insurers out of counties and states at an alarming rate, leaving millions of Americans without choices for affordable health insurance. To receive approval, the state must demonstrate that a proposed waiver will provide access to quality health care that is at least as comprehensive and affordable as would be provided without the waiver, will provide coverage to at least a comparable number of residents of the state as would be provided coverage without a waiver, and will not increase the federal deficit.feedback

May 12 2017

We believe the Medicaid population will be cared for in a better way under our program because it will be more responsive to them.feedback

May 07 2017

There are no cuts to the Medicaid program.feedback

May 07 2017

Sometimes change can be disconcerting to folks. And that's why I would suggest that that list of groups that you had up earlier, say they now oppose it, the fact of the matter is, they're not focusing on the kinds of things that are going to improve the system. These are prominent individuals who are leading, who are leading in this area of health care.feedback

May 07 2017

Whether it's through an office within the White House or whether it's through a department, an agency of government, I don't think the American people care. What they care about is that we are absolutely addressing this opioid crisis in the most aggressive and effective manner possible.feedback

May 07 2017 - Obamacare

The winners under Obamacare were the federal government and insurance companies. The winners under the program that we provide and that we believe is the most appropriate will be patients and families and doctors.feedback

May 07 2017 - American politics

What we're trying to do is to make certain that every single person has health coverage.feedback

May 05 2017 - Trumpcare

We don't want anybody to be without coverage, remembering that there are 20 million folks right now in this nation who said I'm going to pay a penalty. I'm going to suffer the potential from the IRS or ask for a waiver because what the federal government is doing for them as it relates to health care doesn't respond to their needs. We need a better system.feedback

May 04 2017 - Trumpcare

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the privilege of being on your team.feedback

May 02 2017 - Trump Presidency

Imposing burdensome rules that leave business managers and owners worried about harsh potential penalties and less able to serve their customers is unwise and unhelpful.feedback

Apr 18 2017

I have not dug deep into all of the relevant facts.feedback

Apr 03 2017 - Obamacare

Every American ought to be able to purchase the kind of coverage that they want.feedback

Mar 29 2017 - Affordable Care Act

Again, this is one of those areas where we think individuals ought to have access to the kind of coverage that they want, not the kind of coverage that the government forces them to buy.feedback

Mar 29 2017 - Affordable Care Act

What we're committed to is making sure the American people have access to affordable coverage. So you will continue to move at repeal, is what I gained from that conversation. Fourteen hundred and forty-two times the ACA said 'the secretary shall' or 'the secretary may.feedback

Mar 29 2017 - Obamacare

I am committed to fulfilling the oath that I took, which is upholding the law of the land. I haven't had any discussions about that. That was done prior to my arrival. What we're committed to is making certain that the American people have access to affordable coverage. As I said, we're committed to making certain that every American has access to affordable coverage. What we believe is it's important for every single American to be able to choose to buy the coverage they want.feedback

Mar 29 2017 - Obamacare

What we believe is that it's important for every American to choose the kind of coverage that they want. We are committed to carrying out the law of the land.feedback

Mar 19 2017 - Republican Party

If it needs more beefing up ... for folks who are low income, between 50 and 64 years of age, that's something that we've talked about, something that we've entertained, and that may happen throughout the process.feedback

Mar 19 2017

It's a fine needle that needs to be threaded, no doubt about it.feedback

Mar 17 2017

The president's very supportive of this plan, thinks that it addresses his priorities.feedback

Mar 17 2017

I believe it's a perfectly appropriate role for the government – this happens by and large at the state government level, because they're the ones that have the public health responsibility – to determine whether or not immunizations are required for a community population, whether it's growing kids or the like or whether there's an outbreak of a particular infectious disease, whether or not an immunization ought to be required or be able to be utilized.feedback

Mar 16 2017

You had the government before, saying to a certain sector of society, a certain individual, you can't make what that company is willing to pay you for your services. That doesn't sound like America to me. What we're saying is that we ought not single out certain individuals in this nation and have the federal government have the power to be able to say you're going to be treated differently than that individual, even though you make the same amount of money.feedback

Mar 16 2017 - Obamacare

I think that the previous administration singled out health-care executives. You're absolutely right. And what they said is health-care executives ought to be punished.feedback

Mar 16 2017

Yeah, I don't think it stipulates that it's health-care executives. I think it's the level of income. If it's health-care executives, then I'll take a peek at it. It doesn't make any sense.feedback

Mar 14 2017

We think that CBO simply has it wrong.feedback

Mar 14 2017

The CBO report's coverage numbers defy logic.feedback

Mar 14 2017

Every single American will have access and have the financial feasibility to purchase it.feedback

Mar 14 2017

I firmly believe that nobody will be worse off financially in the process that we're going through.feedback

Mar 14 2017

The CBO (Congressional Budget Office report) looked at a portion of our plan but not the entire plan […] So we disagree strenuously with with the report that was put out. We believe that our plan will cover more individuals at a lower cost and give them the choices that they want for the coverage that they want for themselves and for their family, not that the government forces them to buy.feedback

Mar 14 2017

We believe that the plan that we're putting in place is going to insure more individuals than currently are insured. So we think the CBO simply has it wrong.feedback

Mar 13 2017

We believe that our plan will cover more individuals and at a lower cost and give them the choices that they want.feedback

Mar 13 2017

We disagree strenuously. The fact of the matter is, we're working on the regulations right now. The fact of the matter is (Americans) are going to be able to have a coverage policy that they want for themselves and for their family. They are going to have the kind of choices that they want. … So we think that CBO simply has it wrong.feedback

Mar 13 2017

We will read the report, look into report beyond the top lines and we'll have further comment tomorrow and talk with our colleagues about why we believe the entire plan that we have recommended moving forward and adopting is one that will provide greater opportunity for folks to purchase coverage they want.feedback

Mar 13 2017

We disagree strenuously with the report that was put out. It's virtually impossible to have that number occur. … It's just not believable.feedback

Mar 13 2017

Again, the premiums are up and deductibles are up. If you're an individual out there making fifty, sixty thousand dollars and your deductible is eight, ten, twelve thousand bucks you may have that insurance card, but you don't have coverage. And I hear from my former colleagues all the time about patients who come into their office and they recommend something for them, and they're not able to get it because the deductible is so high. I firmly believe that nobody will be worse off financially. There's coverage that's going to go up.feedback

Mar 13 2017

Success, means more people covered than are covered right now, and at an average cost that is less.feedback

Mar 13 2017 - Trumpcare

I firmly believe that nobody will be worse off financially in the process that we're going through, understanding that they'll have choices that they can select the kinda coverage that they want for themselves and for their family. We believe, I believe, and the president believes firmly that if you create a system that's accessible for everybody and you provide the financial feasibility for everybody to get coverage, that we have a great opportunity to increase coverage over where we are right now.feedback

Mar 13 2017

You hear people's lives that have been affected in remarkably adverse ways that sometimes you don't think about as it relates to health care – whether it's businesses that haven't been able to survive, or individuals who need to take three, four, five jobs. Well, in fact the number of individuals who actually got coverage through the exchange who didn't have coverage before, or who weren't eligible for Medicaid before is relatively small. So we've turned things upside down completely for three or four or five million individuals.feedback

Mar 12 2017

Success, it's important to look at that, and it means more people covered than are covered right now at an average cost that is less, and I believe we can firmly do that with the plan that's laid out there right now. I firmly believe that nobody will be worse off financially in the process that we're going through.feedback

Mar 12 2017

I believe and the president believes firmly that if you create a system that's accessible for everybody and you provide the financial feasibility for everybody to get coverage, that we have a great opportunity to increase coverage over where we are right now.feedback

Mar 12 2017

I'll tell you that the plan that we've laid out here will not leave that number of individuals uncovered. In fact I believe, again, that we'll have more individuals covered.feedback

Mar 12 2017

I firmly believe that nobody will be worse off financially in the process that we're going through. There's cost that needs to come down, and we believe we're going to be able to do that through this system. There's coverage that's going to go up. This is a little puzzling because independents and conservatives for decades have said, Shouldn't we equalize the tax treatment of the purchase of health coverage for folks who get it through their employer and folks who aren't able to get it through their employer?feedback

Mar 12 2017

That's exactly what the tax credits do. We don't dictate to people what they ought to buy or what they must buy. There's an opportunity to put some means testing in there but that's not the correlation factor to what it actually costs. Age is the thing that correlates best to what health coverage costs. If you look at it in the way that the market will allow, then, for individuals to have choices, who knows what that 60-year-old wants?feedback

Mar 12 2017

We strongly support the plan, which is this bill.feedback

Mar 12 2017

Who knows what that 60-year-old wants? I know that the federal government doesn't know what that 60-year-old wants.feedback

Mar 08 2017

I'll let others provide a description for it. I prefer to call it patient care.feedback

Mar 08 2017

This is a work in progress and continues to be so. Let me make clear to people that this single bill is not the entire plan.feedback

Mar 08 2017

We think it's important that the legislature work its will on this process.feedback

Mar 08 2017

We need to equalize the tax treatment for the purchase of coverage. Those… in the employer-sponsored market, they get a tax benefit for buying health coverage. Those folks that are out there in the individual small group market, (get) no tax benefit and that's what this plan would (fix).feedback

Mar 07 2017

This is the beginning of the process and we look forward to working with them and others.feedback

Mar 07 2017

This is a work in progress and we'll work with the House and Senate in this process.feedback

Mar 07 2017

The president and the administration support this step in what we believe is in the right direction.feedback

Mar 07 2017

The president and the administration support this step which we believe is in the right direction. This is a work in progress.feedback

Mar 07 2017

This is the culmination of years of work, it's the culmination of years of concern and frustration by the American people. The president and the administration support this step which we believe is in the right direction. This is a work in progress.feedback

Mar 01 2017 - Affordable Care Act

Jan 28 2017

Jan 24 2017

Nobody ought to be priced out of the market for having a bad diagnosis.feedback

Jan 24 2017

We need to make sure nobody loses their insurance or is unable to gain insurance because of pre-existing conditions.feedback

Jan 24 2017

I commit that we will not abandon individuals with preexisting illness or disease.feedback

Jan 21 2017

There's been a lot of talk about individuals losing health coverage. That is not our goal, nor is it our desire, nor is it our plan.feedback

Jan 21 2017

Nobody is interested in pulling the rug out from under anybody. We believe that it's absolutely imperative that individuals, who have health coverage, keep health coverage and move, hopefully, to greater choices and opportunities to gain the coverage that they want for themselves or their families.feedback

Jan 19 2017

Not true. That's not true, Senator.feedback

Jan 18 2017

It was the price that everybody paid for the private placement.feedback

Jan 18 2017

Jan 18 2017

Nobody is going to be dying on the streets with a President Trump.feedback

Jan 18 2017

We all want a health care system that's affordable, that's accessible to all, of the highest quality, with the greatest number of choices, driven by world-leading innovations, and responsive to the needs of the individual patient.feedback

Jan 18 2017

I wasn't making those decisions.feedback

Jan 18 2017

We're a compassionate society.feedback

Jan 18 2017

He "studied the company…and felt it had significant merit and promise and purchased the initial shares on the stock exchange.feedback

Jan 18 2017

Did you take additional actions after [you were notified of the stock purchase] to advance your plan to help the company that you now own stock in?feedback

Jan 18 2017

We believe it's appropriate to put in place a system that gives every person the financial feasibility to be able to purchase the coverage that they want for themselves and for their family, again not what the government forces them to buy.feedback

Jan 11 2017 - Social security

Why some folks here in Washington would be willing to let these programs go bankrupt is beyond me. Medicare and Social Security are going broke.feedback

Dec 21 2016 - Obamacare

The Obama administration has also admitted that 20 percent of those shopping for insurance on the Obamacare exchanges will have only one coverage option to choose from. That is not actually a choice.feedback

Dec 21 2016

Furthermore, those plans that are offered come with narrower networks meaning fewer choices of physicians and less access to quality care.feedback

Nov 29 2016
