I believe it will force Obama to have to talk about what he doesn't want to---the ECONOMY and his 4 year record.Not Romney's taxes.

Biden will force Ryan to talk about his war on SS/Medicare. That will make that critter's eyes bug out even more.

In the state this country is in, you have on one side 2 professional politicians, one a lawyer. The other side a Businessman and an expert on budgets. Doesn't take much sense to see who would do a better job. To even clarify this more, if you had an 18 year old daughter and they where going to out to an event with an older man, and the choice was Obama or Romney, I feel she would be much safer with Romney. So He's got my vote. This message brought to you by Dogsagainstobama.com Eat more Chicken Save the dogs!!!

Fact-Checking the Obama Campaign's Defense of its $716 Billion Cut to Medicare

Itís true that the Obamacare Medicare cuts donít make any changes to the Medicare insurance benefit, which means that the health-care services covered by the Medicare insurance plan are technically unchanged. But Obamacareís Medicare cuts are bluntly structured, in ways that will harm seniorsí access to care.

Of the $716 billion in cuts,$415 billion come in the form of ďupdates to fee-for-service payment rates,Ē a euphemism for reducing Medicareís payments to doctors and hospitals. But what happens when you reduce payments to doctors? Doctors stop being willing to see Medicare patients. And if you canít actually get a doctorís appointment, what does it really matter what your insurance plan covers on paper?

We already see this happening in the Medicaid program, where sick and injured children canít get appointments to deal with urgent medical conditions, because Medicaid so severely underpays doctors relative to private insurers. By the end of this decade, under Obamacare, Medicare reimbursement rates are set to fall below those of Medicaid.

They have already stopped taking new patients. Have you checked out the fact also that under Obama's health care law people with late stage cancer will not be treated? That is what is also in store under his so called health plan.

One-Fourth of Doctors Not Taking New Medicare Patients

Doctors who take Medicare scarce

Thursday, May 10, 2012

We took the findings of our secret shopper investigation to the federal agency in charge of Medicare. The Center for Medicare Services told us it's surprised so many doctors are refusing to take Medicare patients here in the Triangle.

The agency was planning its own secret shopper investigation like ours, but it pulled the plug after getting pushback from doctors.

Dr. Joseph Shanahan was up front with the I-Team about the challenges of accepting Medicare patients.

"I don't do medicine for the money. I never got into it to get rich," he said. "The real reward in medicine is taking care of patients and making them feel better."

But Shanahan says the system doesn't pay enough to cover costs.

"The reimbursement is so low for that - in some cases 60, 80 dollars - it costs you more to get a plumber to come to your house than to get a rheumatologist to come to the hospital," said Shanahan.

Options available without impacting scope of Medicare coverage:

1. Cut cost/payments to providers.
2. Charge higher premiums.
3. Raise taxes.

I paid into Medicare, now you have people who have not and they will get health care from what I paid. And actually at a less cost than what I pay, I payed into it for decades and still pay into it every month.

Cut "waste" -- As in unnecessary tests/procedures/visits? How do you accomplish that without tort reform to reduce defensive medicine. Do you have any idea what doctors have to pay for malpractice coverage? Do you understand how high malpractice costs are for hospitals? I fully support caps on pain/suffering, but until the trial lawyers associations loosen their stranglehold on congress nothing will happen.

Cut "abuse" -- As in fraud? The laws are already there, but hiring the manpower to police more effectively costs money. Also, it involves having people willing to act as "whistleblowers", not exactly the profile of the typical citizen over the age of 65 who can't read, or understand, an EOB.

Cut "illegals"- I am with you 100% on this one! However, that will involve overturning existing law. The Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act, signed by President Reagan in 1986, provided that it was against the law to deny treatment to illegals. Damn that President Reagan and his soft policies on illegal immigration!

I don't feel like even argueing the point, I'm just waiting for Nov and hoping we get America back.Typical 65 year old that can't understand? sure. You liberals remind me of an 18 year old brat who thinks they know more than their parents. Your Messiah is going down faster than Elton John at a San Fran bath house on Saturday night, and the HNIC can cry and sing the Kenyan blues on his way out of the White House.
