Stefanik criticized for Medicare vote


About 25% of the population in our congressional district, New York’s 21st, is over 60 years old. Are you in this group? Is someone you care about in this group?

With this in mind, let’s take a look at one of Rep. Stefanik’s more surprising votes in recent years.

In December 2019 she voted “No” on HR 3, the Lower Drug Costs Now bill. This bill, in addition to lowering the cap for out of pocket Medicare expenses, would have given the Department of Health and Human Services the power to negotiate prescription drug prices and, in 2025, to start including dental coverage as part of Medicare.

Ms. Stefanik, wouldn’t this have helped a lot of folks in our district? Who are you really working for?
