Gingrey: House GOP leadership ‘is not infallible’


So you know that Washington is staggering, zombie-like, toward another government shutdown today, as House Republicans – in late night session – approved a funding bill to keep the federal machine running. Senate Democrats have vowed to reject it. The House action, taken at 12:50 a.m. today, was virtually identical to the one that failed Wednesday – the product of some furious vote-whipping by House GOP leaders. My AJC colleague Daniel Malloy in Washington points out that no Georgians were among the 23 Republicans to flip their votes and back the bill – despite the ...


Gingrey Responds To President Obama’s Job Speech


Congressman Phil Gingrey issued the following statement in response to President Obama’s address before a Joint Session of Congress: “If the past two years of 9 percent national unemployment has taught Americans anything, it’s that stimulus packages do not work. We cannot afford to gamble hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars on more ineffective policies while our national debt continues to mount. Instead, to really spur job creation we need common-sense solutions to eliminate excessive regulations and reform our tax code. ... Source: romenewswire.com

Gingrey: Administration attack on Medicare 'befuddling'
In the House Energy & Commerce Committee’s “Messing with Success: How CMS’ Attack on the Part D Program Will Increase Costs and Reduce Choices for Seniors” hearing today, Rep. Phil Gingrey, M.D., criticized the Obama administration’s recent action to gut the Medicare Part D program.  The proposed rule would result in raised costs and fewer health care options for senior patients.  “It is befuddling that the Obama administration would attack a free-market program that is so clearly working,” said Rep. Gingrey. “The pattern of sacrificing the quality of health care to bring more government control to Medicare programs must stop. This move is yet another example of the administration’s willingness to ignore the intent of written law. This time, it’s our seniors that will be hit the hardest. I will remain steadfast in the fight to preserve the Medicare Part D program for the benefit of our seniors while opposing unilateral executive rulemaking that ignore
Gingrey applauds SGR reform, individual mandate delay
Today, H.R. 4015, the SGR Repeal and Medicare Provider Payment Modernization Act, passed the House of Representatives with a bipartisan vote of 238-181. After passage, Rep. Phil Gingrey, M.D., applauded his colleagues’ efforts to repair the sustainable growth rate formula (SGR), and delay Obamacare’s individual mandate for five years. Since its enactment in 1997, Congress has had to pass 16 legislative patches to prevent physician  payment cuts which would have endangered seniors’ access to quality healthcare.   “This is a critical step towards replacing this flawed formula and protecting Americans from Obamacare’s harmful impact,” said Gingrey. “As Obamacare threatens doctors with skyrocketing costs that threaten their practices, and individual health insurance consumers stare down the barrel of its penalties, this legislation couldn’t be more timely for the whole of our health care industry.”  
Gingrey and Greene applaud FDA approval of first GAIN ACT antibiotic
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved the first antibacterial medication aimed at stopping the rapid spread of antibiotic-resistant “Superbugs,” which were previously impervious to available treatments. The new drug, Dalvance (dalbavancin), is the first Qualified Infectious Disease Product (QIDP) to be approved for human consumption under Reps. Phil Gingrey, M.D., and Gene Greene’s Generating Antibiotic Incentives Now Act – a bipartisan effort to defeat the threat of these drug-resistant infections. Rep. Gingrey: “The GAIN Act has been a great success for the medical community and their patients. The approval of Dalvance is a momentous step in mitigating the risk antibiotic-resistant bacteria poses to patients, and will spur greater investment in future treatments to help fight this ever-increasing public health threat.”    Rep. Greene: “For too long, new drugs have been scarce, while resistant bacteria have become rampant. GAIN
Gingrey demands CDC analyze migrant disease threat
  Rep. Phil Gingrey, M.D., today requested that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) immediately assess the public risk posed by the influx of unaccompanied migrant children across the southern border. The minors who’ve recently overwhelmed U.S. border control infrastructure – many of which are being transported to shelters around the country – have raised massive concern about mitigating the diseases they bring with them.   “We cannot afford to wait for this to become a full-blown health crisis,” said Gingrey. “As a physician for more than 30 years, I know that these diseases pose great danger to our citizens and can spread too rapidly to control. Our leaders must act swiftly to get ahead of this threat before it gets out of hand, and give the American people the information they deserve on the dangers it poses to their health.”
