Health Care Reform: Working as Expected

By on 6.21.10 | 8:29AM

Trust me.  The Obama administration will improve American health care.

Reports USA Today:

The number of doctors refusing new Medicare patients because of low government payment rates is setting a new high, just six months before millions of Baby Boomers begin enrolling in the government health care program.

Recent surveys by national and state medical societies have found more doctors limiting Medicare patients, partly because Congress has failed to stop an automatic 21% cut in payments that doctors already regard as too low. The cut went into effect Friday, even as the Senate approved a six-month reprieve. The House has approved a different bill.

Just wait till further Medicare cuts are imposed in response to burgeoning health care cost increases.

Oh, well.  Who needs doctors anyway?!
