With the new year, Glenn Thompson could see larger district


Pennsylvania will be seeing changes in its congressional districts this year, leaving some Democratic politicians to worry that the move will favor the GOP. The state had to cut one district this year, after data from the 2010 Census showed a decrease in population in Pennsylvania, which will lessen the representation in Washington, Tor Michaels, chief of staff for Scott Conklin, D-Centre, said.

Thompson Cosponsored Protecting Seniors’ Access to Medicare Act Passes House
Washington, D.C. – Today, the House of Representatives approved H.R. 1190, the bipartisan Protecting Seniors’ Access to Medicare Act.  This legislation would repeal the sections of the Affordable Care Act that establish the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), a group of fifteen unelected members tasked with instituting cost constraints on Medicare. “The Independent Payment Advisory Board established under the Affordable Care Act is a bad deal for older Pennsylvanians and in no way helps to preserve or strengthen Medicare for future generations,” said Congressman Thompson.  “Repealing this provision will allow Congress, not backroom bureaucrats, to make decisions when it comes to the healthcare of our nation’s seniors,” Thompson added.   The Protecting Seniors’ Access to Medicare Act has the support of more than 500 organizations representing providers, patients, and the business community. H.R. 1190 passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 244-154. ###

Despite misinformation that has circulated, this bill is not a free-trade agreement, nor does it abdicate any powers to the executive. Rather, Trade Promotion Authority is a prescription from the legislature on how to appropriately conduct negotiations over pending trade agreements. Trade Promotion Authority is not a new concept and has been utilized by both Republican- and Democratic-controlled Congresses and administrations for decades. The bill would allow Senate-confirmed trade negotiators to hash out the intricate details of pending agreements. This legislation carries unprecedented oversight capabilities for Congress, which promote transparency, as we look to expand the ability of the United States to access new export markets. America represents only a portion of the global consumer market, and breaking down trade barriers will ensure our b
