Are they doing this as to not alienate Medicare users until after the November elections?

WASHINGTON - With lawmakers worried that older Americans relying on Medicare could begin losing access to health care, the Senate on Friday approved a six-month plan to prevent a steep cut in doctors' fees paid by the federal health program.

The $6.4 billion measure would reverse a 21 percent cut in physician payments that was to kick in Friday, raising the possibility that some doctors might begin to turn away those covered by Medicare. The legislation, known on Capitol Hill as the doc fix, was approved without a roll-call vote after leaders of both parties agreed to pull it out of a stalled package of tax changes and safety-net spending.

Seems like thats exactly what it is......

 

We're doomed because we can't even keep the cuts we put into legislation. Too many cry babys in this country who have been used to sucking on the Gov's teet. I mean what would older American's do without the Gov's teet?

Yep, politicians doing what ever is necessary to get elected.

Hopefully the electorate can see through it, but don't count on it.

If it looks like a ploy,

and walks like a ploy,

and quacks like a ploy,

it's a ploy.
