Provide a short explanation of your position. (Optional except when leaving a neutral statement.)

CF&P supports removing any and all obstacles to market-oriented health care reform. Abolishing the Independent Payment Advisory Board created by Obamacare is essential to reducing government distortions in the health care market that unnecessarily drive up costs and reduce both access to and the quality of care received.

I support H.R. 351: Protecting Seniors’ Access to Medicare Act of 2013 because... My husband is 77; he has had heart procedures & 1 heart surgery to save his life. We have adult children, grandchildren, & 3 little greatgrandchildren who love & learn from their grampa, & from me. -- It would be cruel & just plain socialism if he, nor I could be still be living & productive for our family if he, or I were denied health saving care; or denied seeing our own Dr. And govenrment should NEVER be in a decision making position, nor should unelected bureaucrats be making decision about American, & any county's citizens. Thank you much, Respectfully submitted, Jennine

I support H.R. 351: Protecting Seniors’ Access to Medicare Act of 2013 because...We paid into Social Security and Medicare for over 50 years. That was meant to be our retirement fund and healthcare. Congress and President Johnson robbed our Social Security "Trust Fund" with three and half trilion dollars (which FDR promiised would never be touched) and put it into their budget to help balance his budget. Which he and his Congress had no authority to. Take the graft out of Medicare and you would have plenty to take care of us. It cost my wife and I not only what is taken out for Medicare but also $300 per month for Medicare Plus Blue. Congress should have their health fund removed, put on the same Social Security and Medicare we have which would help pay the cost. Also remember the millions that paid in died and never received any beneffitsl

I support H.R. 351: Protecting Seniors’ Access to Medicare Act of 2013 because.the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). should be terminated. The IPAB is nothing more than a "death panel" that the President "promised" it was not. My husband underwent prostate cancer surgery and is cancer free thanks to annual testing of PSA. The Federal Govt. now recommends annual PSA tests are not necessary (your friendly IPAB at work). We have several friends who are alive and well and cancer-free thanks to catching their cancer early through annual PSA tests..AARP recommended ObamaCare-- not for the good of their members but because AARP stood to make $1 billion. (Quit AARP and join AMAC.) AARP now agrees with the govt. board's health tests recommendations. Seniors and their doctors should be the only ones to determine the medical course of action best for their condition-- not insurance companies and not governmental review boards (Medicare or IPAB). Medicare reimburses a doctor's fee at about half the cost of services, causing a doctor to limit the percent of Medicare patients he/she can treat and still remain in practice. Vote "YES" on H.R. 351.

I support H.R. 351 ("To repeal the provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act providing for the") because I believe important decisions such as the course of an individual's health care path can only and should only be decided between a patient and his or her doctor, and NOT some medically untrained and emotionally detached group of individuals on a faceless board. To my great comfort, at least as of now, we are NOT living in the UK or other places in Europe where such boards are responsible for the fate of the elderly, chronically ill or mentally challenged. When we reduce the miracle of LIFE itself to a dollar value, we cheapen the value of all life and lessen our own humanity. PLEASE consider supporting this bill! Many thanks, Linda Kilki, El Cajon, CA
