The Unaffordable Care Act pulls $700 billion out of Medicare. Only a fool would think that medical payments would be reduced and/or care rationed.
Calling Obamacare "affordable" is like calling the Holocaust "Condos for Jews."
The ACA does not reduce medicare payments to doctors.

The Dow closed at an all-time high Tuesday, beating the previous record it set in October 2007, before the financial crisis and Great Recession.
The Dow Jones industrial average closed at 14,253.77, up 125.95 points, or 0.89 percent. The index jumped from the opening bell, climbed as much as 158 points early and peaked at 14,286.
Twenty seven stocks in the 30-member Dow advanced, with industrial companies leading the gains.
Occupy Wall Street liberals consumed obama. Thank God for the Corporations and the those rich Republicans.

google it yourself or:
"The ObamaCare Medicare cuts will mainly affect Hospital reimbursement rates for hospitals and private health insurance companies. The claim is that by cutting the profit hospitals and insurance companies make off of Medicare and Medicare advantage the less help seniors will be able to get."

or this one:
http://medcitynews.com/2010/05/doctors-get-re...
"Under the SGR, without congressional intervention, the initial Medicare pay cut would amount to 21.3 percent. The impact is not hard to fathom. For example, the Fairfield County Medical Association in Connecticut reported that, if such cuts were to actually take effect, 41 percent of county doctors would stop taking new Medicare patients, and nearly one out of four doctors would drop Medicare altogether."

1) The ACA reduces payments to hospitals, not doctors. Hospitals trades thee lower payments in exchange for 30 million new paying customers.

2) The SGR has NOTHING to do with the ACA.

8. Private insurers offering Medicare Advantage (MA) plans will no longer be paid extra by Medicare to cover additional services (dental, vision, free health club memberships). Some of the MA plans may lower their costs by reducing the extra services, raising the co-pays, or "reducing payments to doctors".

Obama gave us Occupy Wall Street. Obama tried to identify himself with the protestors, according to ABC News, by talking about how the American dream was, "slipping away."
