WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas today released the following statement regarding legislation to address the Medicare sustainable growth rate (SGR) formula, also known as the ‘doc fix':

"While I appreciate the work done by my colleagues in the House, I cannot support the Boehner-Pelosi bill, which institutionalizes and expands Obamacare policies that harm patients and their doctors while adding roughly half a trillion dollars to our long-term debt within two decades. The so-called ‘SGR' is a flawed approach that needs to be eliminated, but doing so should be a catalyst for real entitlement reform. Any deal should be fully paid for and include significant and structural reforms to Medicare that provide seniors more power and control over their health care."
