Another Day, Another Republican Covering Up His Health Care Record

John Culberson Joins the Long List of Congressional Republicans Trying To Rewrite the Past

Houston, Texas - Embattled incumbent John Culberson is rewriting his own history of dangerous health care votes. Yesterday, Culberson tried to cover up his past record by sending a letter to House Republican Leadership to “repair and protect” Medicare Part D.

But Culberson voted against final passage of Medicare Part D, saying opposed it because it barred price negotiations on prescription drugs, but then in 2007, he voted against a bill to implement price negotiations for Medicare Part D. He has voted at least five times for Republican budgets that would gut Medicare and voted repeatedly reopen the Medicare Part D “Donut Hole” by voting to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

During his nearly two decades in Congress, Culberson has amassed a record for of opposition to Medicare and to efforts to ensure affordable health care for all Americans.

While in Congress, Culberson has:

  • Voted against Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage (2003).
  • Voted against implementing price negotiations for Medicare Part D (2007).
  • Voted at least five times for Republican budgets that would gut Medicare.
  • Voted 19 times to reopen the Medicare Donut Hole.

Culberson’s election-year move mirrors Republicans across the country who are trying to hide their records from voters to save their seats. Voters deserve the truth about John Culberson’s dangerous record on health care.
