Rep. Deutch Co-Introduced Bill to Offer Medicare Buy-In for Older Americans
As the national dialogue heats up around healthcare and Americans are seeking real solutions that address their long-term needs, Congressman Ted Deutch (FL-22) joined with Congressmen Brian Higgins (NY-26), John Larson (CT-01), and Joe Courtney (CT-02) to introduce the “Medicare Buy-In and Healthcare Stabilization Act,” a bill that improves on the successes of the Medicare program and provides middle-age Americans a new option for affordable, quality healthcare.  The Medicare Buy-In Act will lower the Medicare eligibility age to 50 years and offer the option to buy-in to Medicare, thus avoiding the increase in premiums that older Americans often face. Additionally, working Americans who wish to buy into the program would have the option to do so, and their employers could continue to contribute to their premiums pre-tax, a win-win for those employers and employees. The buy-in option will hold down costs in both Medicare and the private market. Congress approved legislation

(Washington) Congressman Ted Deutch (FL-22) led 148 of his colleagues in a letter to Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price requesting an explanation for the abrupt cancellation of the 5-year Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program (TPPP) grants. The grants were initially awarded in 2015 with funding through Fiscal Year 2020. "Since Congress established TPPP in 2010, this unique and innovative program has served more than a million young people, trained more than 7,000 professionals, and supported partnerships among more than 3,000 community-based organizations across the country," the Members state in the letter. "Grounded in evidence and committed to quality implementation, evaluation and innovation, TPPP has supported a local approach to the healthy development of young people and helped to reduce unintended teen pregnancies to historic lows." The only organizations in Florida to receive the TPPP grant are located in South Florida. OIC of South Florida, base

Rep. Deutch Statement on Pres. Trump's Ban on Transgender Soldiers
Congressman Ted Deutch (FL-22), Vice Chair of the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus, issued this statement following President Trump's announcement that the U.S. military would not allow transgender Americans to openly serve: "President Trump’s mean-spirited decision to exclude qualified and dedicated Americans from our military has no legitimate justification. This is discrimination against qualified Americans, and the policy has no basis in military need or legal authority. "These are Americans, period. Transgender soldiers are just as committed as their fellow cisgender soldiers to defend our nation and our American principles. In fact, transgender Americans serve in the military at higher rates than the general population, and surveys have shown transgender veterans’ willingness to return to service if they were allowed to openly. We’re holding back our military from being the very best by denying skilled and honorable soldiers from our ranks. This decision is hateful
