Missing the Boat

Posted By Jill Greenberg On December 18, 2007 @ 2:20 pm In Health Talk | No Comments

Wow has Congress has missed the boat on health care this year! The package of Medicare improvements [1]winding its way through the Senate only helps Congress get out of town. Instead of taking the opportunity to help Medicare beneficiaries by keeping premiums affordable or permanently fixing the payment cuts that could drive doctors out of Medicare, they punted.
How many times have we seen this? It’s time for real action and answers on these important issues. This is the stuff that affects all of us.
