RetireSafe

On behalf of the more than 400,000 older Americans that RetireSafe represents nationwide, I want to express both our deepest thanks and our strongest endorsement for H.R. 452, your bill to repeal the provisions of the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” (PPACA) that establish the infamous Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB).

It is designed to cut spending and benefits to reach a specific savings target, based on a flawed inflation formula.
