House could delay Medicare rate cuts

(CNN) - The House on Monday is scheduled to take up a $1-billion measure delaying by one month a 23 percent cut in federal Medicare reimbursements to doctors.

The payment reduction is scheduled to go into effect Wednesday if members of the House don't act. The Senate approved the legislation earlier this month.

    Repeal Obamacare.
    Restore social programs such as retirement benefits and Medicare to their originally intended functions in the lives of productive citizens who have made lifelong contributions to this nation.
    Then, as quickly as possible, fire this vote-buying president.
    Let the young dependency-addicted voters whom Obama sends checks get up and take jobs at salaries based on what they have prepared themselves to do, which is too frequently almost nothing.
    Have them all read Nietzsche.

    Looks like there's a chance that more doctors will be dropping patients that depend on medicare for their health needs.

    So let's see... a 23% cut in Medicare reimbursement to doctors costs $1 Billion per month. So where are they finding $500 Billion in cuts for Obamacare? Everything the government gets involved in turns to crap.
