This is the temp ‘doc fix’ that congress did before they ran off to get either dumped or re-elected. It just stopped the 21% cut already in effect and gave a temp increase of 2% until Dec 1.

BUT Beginning Jan 1, an additional 10% decrease starts...with another 10% in 1012, and another 10% in 2013...30% altogether on top of the 23%, if simple math is correct that’s a 53% cut...COMPLETE GUT of Medicare.

According to the WSJ there is a $8+ TRILLION gut over 20 years to Medicare.

How ObamaCare Guts Medicare
