Congressional members of the The House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health kicked off a two-day meeting Wednesday to find a way to reform the flawed Sustainable Growth Rate formula and offset the $140 billion the program costs the government. The lawmakers, however, struggled to find a fix on the first day of hearings.

“Coming up with approximately $140 billion in offsets will not be easy, but it is a task we must embrace,” said Health Subcommittee Chairman Joe Pitts, R-PA during the meeting.
