Thank you Whip Hoyer, Congressman Pallone, Congressman Neal, Congressman Scott, Leader Pelosi, and the other Members of Congress for holding this important hearing and for inviting me to testify. What an honor it was to share the crucial role Medicaid has played in Caroline's life
You can click HERE to watch the live video Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer posted on his Facebook wall. My testimony is at the 1:40:00 mark. FYI--the Facebook version is better and you don't need a Facebook account to view the video. You can also watch the YouTube version below but you won't be able to see the speakers because the camera points at our backs.
