Department Of Defense Appropriations Act—Continued December 28, 2012
Jerry Moran, R-KS
"We need to understand that while we are talking about taxes, we are talking about a tax increase that will affect everyday Kansans and everyday Americans. The research I have seen indicates that a teacher in my State making $43,000 a year, in the absence of us dealing with this issue, his or her taxes would go up $3,000 a year, which is about $250 a month. That does not include the end of the temporary payroll tax holiday, the new ObamaCare tax increases, or the alternative minimum tax, which affects taxpayers at income levels of more than "

"Mr. Speaker, due to a previously scheduled doctor’s appointment, I was absent from votes in the House last Thursday (February 9th) and missed rollcall votes 47 and 48. Had I been present, I would have voted “aye” on both rollcall votes—47 (the House Amendment to S. 2038—the STOCK Act) and 48 (motion to Instruct Conferees on H.R. 3630—the Temporary Payroll Tax Cut Continuation Act)."
Moving Ahead For Progress In The 21St Century Act February 16, 2012
Tom Harkin, D-IA
"On behalf of the American College of Preventive Medicine (ACPM), I urge you to oppose any effort to divert funds from the Prevention and Public Health Fund to finance an extended “doc fix” in the Medicare physician fee schedule as part of the negotiations on H.R. 3630, the Temporary Payroll Tax Cut Continuation Act of 2011. ACPM is the national professional society for over 2,500 physicians who dedicate their careers to prevention and health promotion at the individual and population levels. As such, ACPM has a primary interest in expanding our nation’s investment in prevention to improve the health of communities across the country while adding greater value to our health care system. While ACPM has been a staunch supporter of efforts to fix the broken sustainable growth rate formula used to calculate Medicare physician reimbursement levels, the College will not support any proposal that diverts funds away from disease prevention programs in order to increase payments for disease treatment. The Prevention and Public Health Fund, established through the Affordable Care Act, represents a critical investment in public health and a historic commitment towards efforts that will help shift the focus of our health care system from disease treatment to disease prevention and health promotion. Already, states are using Prevention Fund dollars to bolster our public health infrastructure and to build a stronger foundation for prevention in communities and neighborhoods that are most in need. To drain the fund of its important resources just when communities are now putting prevention to work represents a shortsighted approach to fund increased reimbursements for Medicare providers. There has long been strong bipartisan support for efforts that improve health, reduce costs, and enhance the value of our health care system. Now is not the time to abandon these goals. ACPM will continue to strongly oppose any efforts to decrease the federal commitment to prevention and public health and we ask that you join us in these efforts. Sincerely,"
