ON BEHALF of Pennsylvania's nursing home residents and staff, thank you to those local members of Pennsylvania's congressional delegation (U.S. Reps. Robert Brady, Chaka Fattah, Patrick Murphy, Allyson Schwartz and Joe Sestak, and U.S. Sens. Robert Casey and Arlen Specter) for voting for H.R. 1586, the Education Jobs and Medicaid Assistance Act, which will send approximately $668 million in additional federal Medicaid aid to Pennsylvania.
Legislators who voted in favor of this bill demonstrated true leadership.
We owe it to our seniors - the men and women who fought our wars, labored in our factories and built our communities strong - to ensure that compassionate, quality care is there for them when and where they need it.
