Rehberg Votes Against Montana Families, For Increased Taxes

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

Washington, DC was thrown for a loop yesterday when House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) announced that he and his caucus would reject a bipartisan payroll tax extension bill that had already passed the Senate with 89 votes. The deal, negotiated largely between Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Democrats, and the White House would have extended payroll tax cuts that have been in place already for several years as well as forcing the Obama administration to accelerate its decision-making process on the Keystone XL pipeline. Boehner had, by most accounts, given McConnell his proxy to negotiate on behalf of all Senate Republicans, but after the deal was finalized House backbenchers started complaining and Boehner flip-flopped.

New Ad Pressures Rehberg on Medicare, Medicaid Cuts

“They say an elephant never forgets but these Republicans in Congress clearly have forgotten that the economy needs to work for everyone. No matter how they frame the cuts, Rep. Denny Rehberg and his Republicans colleagues need to realize that slashing Medicare and Medicaid will do nothing to create jobs. And you better believe Montana residents will remember those cuts. Asking our seniors and those who can least afford it to bear the burden while millionaires continue to enjoy the privilege of tax breaks – as Republicans have a history of doing – not only doesn’t make fiscal sense but it’s just cruel. It’s time for the GOP to remember their constituents and not just those that line their campaign coffers.”

How Libby, Montana, Got Medicare for All | MyFDL

Less than two months after the passage of the health reform bill on March 23, 2010, Nancy Berryhill of the Social Security Administration in Denver joined personally in setting up an office in Libby to sign up these newly eligible people.  “This is a new thing,” Berryhill told the Missoulian.  “No other group like this has ever been selected to receive Medicare.”  Berryhill issued a nationwide alert to inform anyone who had lived or stayed in Lincoln County of their eligibility.  She opened a storefront in Libby at the old downtown city hall where she signed up 60 people on the first day.  She plastered the towns of Whitefish and Eureka with pamphlets explaining the program and added three new staffers to the office in Kalispell.

Health Law Expands Medicare To Montana Asbestos Patients

That program was set up because the Grace medical plan failed to cover everyone who needed help, said Benefield, who also been a leading advocate to get help for the town’s residents. The Grace program hires its own doctors to independently verify if applicants have the type of asbestos-related disease connected to the Libby mine. The government program doesn’t have this independent verification process. Applicants merely have to submit information from their own doctor certifying they had asbestos-related disease.
