Fort Worth, TX – The Madison Project PAC made the following statement regarding the passage of Medicare’s Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR), also known as Doc Fix, a bill that adds $141 billion to the deficit:

“The House GOP leadership’s “Doc Fix” is bad policy,” said Drew Ryun of the Madison Project.  “It increases the deficit and forces our nation’s taxpayers to foot the bill. While we’re in favor of replacing the SGR this could have been done responsibly without forcing our nation further into debt.

“If Rep. Alex Mooney had kept his campaign pledge to the conservative grassroots and opposed Rep. John Boehner for Speaker we might not be in this current situation.  A more conservative House leadership would not be pushing legislation as destructive as this Doc Fix.”
