Medicare patients at risk without doctors' fiscal cliff fix

Washington (CNNMoney) - As lawmakers head into talks to avoid the fiscal cliff, doctors are watching closely.

Thanks to bad timing, the Medicare fees that doctors are paid for treating seniors has gotten tangled up in the same high-stakes deal-making to avert the fiscal cliff - across the board tax hikes and spending cuts that kick in January.

    Everything at risk without fixing fiscal responsibility by congress idiots. They are inter twined each other. JOHN Boehner has no brain nor congress nor that ELECTED THESE IDIOTS. True.

    If this is allowed to happen, I blame Boehner. The Republicans who don't want to raise taxes on the rich or cooperate in any revenue increase and Boehner is their leader. It is time to engage in reality. We cannot fix the situation without raising revenues and frankly, the middle class is all tapped out. I guess we voters need to send another message in 2014 to the GOP. They seemed to not have gotten it this time around.
