Cosponsor H. Res. 33 and Oppose the Privatization of the U.S. Postal Service!

            For over 240 years, the United States Postal Service and our dedicated postal workforce have performed the essential government function of “providing postal services to bind the Nation together through the personal, educational, literary,
and business correspondence of the people.” In furtherance of this mission, the Postal Service and its more than 500,000 clerks, letter carriers, mail handlers, and other employees deliver the mail to over 157 million residential and business customers
six days a week nationwide.  Given the effectiveness of the Postal Service in fulfilling its critical public service mission, it is not surprising that the American people have consistently ranked the Postal Service as our most trusted government agency. 
In a
recent Gallup poll, an overwhelming majority of Americans also rated the Postal Service as “doing an excellent or good job.”

Cosponsor H.R. 1345, the Restoring the Partnership for County Health Care Costs Act of 2019

I write to ask for your support for the Restoring the Partnership for County Health Care Costs Act of 2019.  This bill requires that individuals who receive Medicare, Medicaid, Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and/or Supplementary Security
Income (SSI) benefits, and are subsequently incarcerated pending disposition of their charges, maintain those benefits until they are convicted of a crime. Furthermore, the bill eliminates the current mandatory 30 day delay in reinstating Medicaid mental health
care benefits for those released from custody. During this period of time, people in need of mental health assistance are without such care and run the risk of violating the law once again thereby contributing to our country’s significant problem of recidivism.

Cosponsor H.R. 2905, the Medicare IVIG Access Enhancement Act

We are writing to urge you to cosponsor our bipartisan legislation, H.R. 2905, the Medicare IVIG Access Enhancement Act. The bill would provide much-needed assistance to Medicare patients suffering from two rare diseases, Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating
Polyneuropathy (CIDP) and Multifocal Motor Neuropathy (MMN). These debilitating conditions are the result of a patient’s own immune system attacking their motor nerves, leading to compromised mobility and reduced quality of life. Patients are frequently treated
with intravenous immune globulin (IVIG), a plasma-derived medicine that can significantly improve health outcomes for these vulnerable patient populations.
