Medicare backlash: A primary care doctor lays out his costs - Mar. 4, 2010
First off, that's the same damn bill that you were praising Bunning for holding up and urging his cohorts (and your favorite party people) NOT to extend last week. (The one postponing the 21% decrease.) Last week you wanted it to go into effect immediately.
Secondly, it' most likely going to be put off again since the reason they wanted the short term emergency bill was to find a way to keep it solvent.
Thirdly, the "doctor" in the story you cut and pasted deserves to lose his money if he thinks that a 21% cut is going to take $3.00 away from every $5.00.
A 21% cut would take 21 cents from each dollar - or $1.05 from his every $5.00 not his stated $3.00.
Do you know that people suffer a lot since Obama sworn in?????:singing::singing::singing: Why do you have to change for the worse?:singing::singing::singing::singing:
Just in case you STILL think it's Obama + The Dems who are out to cut Medicare payments.....
WASHINGTON â€” Legislation extending unemployment insurance for the long-term jobless faces a key test vote in the Senate, its momentum helped by about 60 popular tax breaks for individuals and businesses that expired at the end of last year.
The measure also prevents doctors from absorbing a crippling cut in Medicare payments, extends health insurance subsidies for the unemployed and gives cash-starved states help with Medicaid, the federal-state program providing health care to the poor and disabled.
Democrats need to muster at least one Republican vote Tuesday to reach the 60-vote threshold needed to limit debate and guarantee an up-or-down vote.
The Associated Press: Senate to take up unemployment insurance extension
Susan Collins says she "might" vote for it now that they've added the more than 60 tax breaks.
So, NEP, what's with that???? Only one Republican is FOR keeping Medicare for our seniors? Only one Republican is FOR tax cuts?
Gosh......could this be plain old obstructionism or have Republicans suddenly changed their minds about tax cuts and old people????
Obstructionism and flip-flopping is beginning to be the Republican version of change you can believe in.
