Pelosi makes 3 appointments to long-term care panel

Both CLASS repeal and the new panel were part the year-end deal to raise taxes and delay automatic spending cuts.

Pelosi named three members to the bipartisan panel on Wednesday.

She chose Bruce Chernof, president and chief executive of the SCAN Foundation; Judith Stein, founder of the Center for Medicare Advocacy; and George Vrandenburg, a philanthropist and former entertainment executive.

“These three leaders will represent the interests, concerns and voices of every family struggling to deal with issues of long-term care, and we look forward to working with them to develop a clear, comprehensive plan to tackle these challenges," Pelosi said in a statement.
