This is from the September 23, 2020 hearing on "Health Care Lifeline: The Affordable Care Act and the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] Pandemic" before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce, Subcommittee on Health. From the opening statement of Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr: "The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented health and economic crisis -- 200,000 Americans have lost their lives, more than six million have been infected with the disease and tens of millions have lost their jobs. Millions of American families are justifiably anxious and concerned about both their health and their financial security. The Heroes Act, which the House passed more than four months ago, would provide more support and assistance to struggling families, by expanding the health care safety net, increasing support to states to fund their Medicaid programs, and ensuring access to free treatment for COVID-19." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Aviva Aron-Dine, Dean Cameron, Douglas Holtz-Eakin, Peter Lee, and Benjamin D. Sommers.
