It's funny to watch the Maggot Obama Squirm when trying to LIE about the $500 BILLION in Cuts to Medicare/Medicaid then trying to Double Count It!
But it's Sad to see how Obama Created 15 Member Death Panels that will decide if Seniors are "Worthy" of life-saving treatments.




What Filth!

Obama Panel to Curb Medicare Finds Foes in Both Parties

By ROBERT PEAR
Published: April 19, 2011

WASHINGTON — Democrats and Republicans are joining to oppose one of the most important features of President Obama’s new deficit reduction plan, a powerful independent board that could make sweeping cuts in the growth of Medicare spending.



Mr. Obama wants to expand the power of the 15-member panel, which was created by the new health care law, to rein in Medicare costs.

But not only do Republicans and some Democrats oppose increasing the power of the board, they also want to eliminate it altogether. Opponents fear that the panel, known as the Independent Payment Advisory Board, would usurp Congressional spending power over one of the government’s most important and expensive social programs.

Under the law, spending cuts recommended by the presidentially appointed panel would take effect automatically unless Congress voted to block or change them. In general, federal courts could not review actions to carry out the board’s recommendations. The impact of the board’s decisions could be magnified because private insurers often use Medicare rates as a guide or a benchmark in paying doctors, hospitals and other providers.

Last week, in his speech on deficit reduction, Mr. Obama said he wanted to beef up the board’s cost-cutting powers in unspecified ways should the growth of Medicare spending exceed certain goals.




DEATH PANELS from the Faux Messiah!!!!

WHAT FILTH!!!

It's not that I don't like old people and the poor. I just don't like freeloaders.

George W. Bush was right. We need to privatize Medicare and Medicaid. Wry-an is the right guy to get the job done. We can give old people vouchers and they can buy supplemental health insurance to cover the costs. The same goes for the poor.

If there is one truly great thing about Bishop Rmoney, it's that he knows how to hire a great henchman. His private sector experience as a vulture capitalist, at Bain Capital, is the proof in the pudding.

Now that he hired Wry-an, I FINALLY truly believe Bishop Rmoney will REPEAL RMONEYCARE once elected!!! Before I wasn't so sure...

Besides Florida always votes for Democrats. It's not like we had a chance there anyway.

Obama Proposes $320 Billion in Medicare and Medicaid Cuts Over 10 Years

By ROBERT PEAR
Published: September 19, 2011

WASHINGTON — President Obama’s budget director said Monday that the president’s new deficit-reduction plan would impose “a lot of pain,” and that is clearly true of White House proposals to cut $320 billion from projected spending on Medicare and Medicaid in the coming decade.

Mr. Obama proposed higher premiums and deductibles for many Medicare beneficiaries and lower Medicare payments to teaching hospitals and rural hospitals. He would start charging co-payments to frail homebound older people who receive home health services. And he would reduce the growth of federal payments to states for treating low-income people under Medicaid.

The White House said Mr. Obama’s proposals would cut $248 billion from the projected growth of Medicare in the next 10 years, while shaving $72 billion from Medicaid and other health programs. A large share of the Medicare savings would, in effect, be used to pay doctors, who would otherwise face deep cuts in the fees they receive for treating Medicare patients.

Obama Raises Cost for the Poor

About 5 percent of the 48 million Medicare beneficiaries now pay the higher premiums. The proportion would eventually rise to 25 percent under the proposal.

Starting in 2017, Mr. Obama would require certain new beneficiaries to pay co-payments for home health care, which is now exempt from such charges. The co-payment would be $100 per episode, defined as a series of five or more home health visits not preceded by a stay in a hospital or a skilled nursing home.

Howard J. Bedlin, vice president of the National Council on Aging, a service and advocacy group, said such co-payments would “significantly increase out-of-pocket costs for many low-income widows with multiple chronic conditions.” Likewise, Mr. Bedlin said,“The Medigap proposal would shift costs onto Medicare beneficiaries.”
