Obama seeks cuts in Medicare
This is just the kind of thing that Democrats would oppose if a Republican was trying to impose it. It will give seniors another reason to vote against Democrats in November. They have been saying all along that Obamacare was going to means buts in their benefits with a transfer to the uninsured. The cuts would likely mean fewer doctors accepting Medicare patients resulting in longer waits and rationed care for those in the system.
An Obama administration proposal to reduce Medicare payment rates for managed care plans was met with resistance by Republicans, who said beneficiaries would suffer.
