Chair Tiberi Launches New Podcast

Joint Economic Committee Chairman Pat Tiberi (R-OH) recently unveiled Main Street Economics, the first-ever podcast by committee Republicans. Participants will talk about ways to expand economic opportunity for American families.

“This podcast is a chance to dive a little deeper into some issues that are truly impacting lives on Main Street, like lowering the cost of health care, increasing job opportunities, creating a fairer, simpler tax code, and improving families’ abilities to get ahead,” said Chairman Tiberi. “Joint Economic Committee Republicans remain committed to promoting policies that can improve the lives of all Americans following the uneven economic recovery.”

The first episode, hosted by Chairman Tiberi, features Joint Economic Committee member Representative David Schweikert (R-AZ). They discuss lowering the cost of health insurance and separate myths from facts about coverage and risk pools. As a member of the Ways and Means Committee, Representative Schweikert wrote the provisions that add the invisible risk sharing program to the House-passed American Health Care Act. In addition, Chairman Tiberi asks Representative Schweikert about his role as the co-chairman of the Congressional Blockchain Caucus and the potential for Blockchain technology to improve secure transactions and record-keeping.

Future podcasts will be released periodically. You can find Main Street Economics podcasts on iTunes, Blubrry.

Pat Tiberi to Hold Medicare Red Tape Relief Project Roundtable at The James

Columbus — On Aug. 17, Representative Pat Tiberi, Chairman of the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Health, participated in a roundtable hosted by The Ohio State University with local health care providers to request feedback on regulations and mandates in the Medicare program. This roundtable is part of Chairman Tiberi’s Medicare Red Tape Relief Project, which he launched on July 24, 2017, to allow the Ways and Means Committee to work directly with doctors, nurses, clinicians and other medical health care professionals to learn more about the challenges they face and work to deliver the regulatory relief they need to improve patient care.

About the Medicare Red Tape Relief Project

On July 24, 2017, Ways and Means Health Subcommittee Chairman Pat Tiberi (R-OH) announced a new initiative to deliver relief from the regulations and mandates that impede innovation, drive up costs, and ultimately stand in the way of delivering better care for Medicare beneficiaries. Working with doctors, nurses, clinicians, and other health care professionals, the Committee will identify opportunities to reduce legislative and regulatory burdens on Medicare providers, improving the efficiency and quality of the Medicare program for seniors and individuals with disabilities.

The Initiative has three stages:

1. Request feedback from stakeholders to learn more about the policies that improve health care – and the policies that stand in the way;

2. Host roundtables with stakeholders across the country to continue the conversations and identify solutions; and

3. Take Congressional action based on feedback from stakeholders.
