Bucshon discusses his choice to resign from Congress



Indianapolis, Indiana – During his last term, Congressman Larry Bucshon stated that work on healthcare costs and reimbursement rates should be anticipated.

This Thursday, after serving in the US House for 14 years, the Republican from Indiana announced his resignation from Congress. According to Bucshon, he feels he has done his time and should go back to the private sector.

Before entering the Congress, Bucshon worked as a cardiac surgeon. He stated that, having not performed medicine during his 14 years in Congress, and being of retirement age for most heart surgeons, he has no intention of taking up that position again. He stated that he intends to take action about health care policy, but he is unsure of what exactly.

“I hope to find a position. You never know, something in health care, something government-centric,” he said. “I’m going to be open to possibilities.”

With Bucshon’s declaration, Indiana will have four House seats up for grabs in the 2024 election cycle, all of which are presently held by Republicans. A day after Bucshon, Congressman Greg Pence declared his retirement. Last year, Congresswoman Victoria Spartz declared she would not run for office again, but she has since indicated she might change her mind. Jim Banks, a congressman, is resigning from office to pursue a Senate campaign.

According to Bucshon, assisting citizens in obtaining necessary government services or resolving problems they encountered with those services has been his favorite aspect of serving in Congress. He declared that he would concentrate on Medicare reimbursement rates and healthcare price transparency during his remaining days in office. According to him, increasing those prices will encourage medical professionals to work in underprivileged urban and rural areas.

According to Bucshon, he will not support a candidate in the Republican primary to replace him. He stated that he would prefer voters make that choice. In the general election scheduled for November, Bucshon declared that he would back the Republican candidate for his seat.
