Democrats Refuse to Rescind 500 Billion in Medicare Cuts

Democrats will transfer the 500 Billion in cuts to  Medicaid.

Citizens receiving Medicare have paid into Medicare all of their life. Removing 500 billion dollars seems like theft to me.

In Sept.,the Democratic congress approved a plan to cut $16 billion Medicare financed nursing home care over the next 10 years. The new Obama care health plan will cut an  additional $32 billion over the next ten years from Medicare financed nursing homes. Hundreds, maybe thousands of nursing homes across the nation are expected to close.
The 500 Billion-Dollar Cut in Medicare in the health care plan will be used for Medicaid.

Some of the Republican amendments for the health care plan  voted down by Democrats were:

  • Rescind a cut of 500 Billion Dollars meant for Medicare
  • The elimination of sweetheart deals used to buy votes for the Health Care Bill.
  • An amendment to strip the bill of tax increases affecting individuals who make less than $200,000 a year.
  • Requirement for Obama and all members of congress to use the same health care plan
