If you kind of line them up...the bankers, the Wall Street crowd, the doctors, the medical business folks....everyone with money on the bad end of the business situation right now....need to line up and pay campaign fund boxes. Both 2013 and 2014 ought to be banner years as folks get lots of cash to influence the 2014 election.

It looks more and more that conservatives will get far more of what they want if the fiscal cliff happens, then if the Republicans compromise on anything.

In this case, for those people truly dependent on Medicare, they will quickly be shifted to Medicaid. However, for people of means, it means that they will have to pick up the tab for their own medical care.

Importantly, if people pay for their own medical care, the *price* of that medical care quickly drops by about 50% or more, which is currently consumed by the Medicare *system*.

Harsh, but important medicine, to get people to realize that Medicare is costing a LOT more than it is providing.

Wait, weren’t the cost savings in Obamacare predicated on this rate cut? If so, then let it stand. Let people start feeling what they have wrought. More importantly, let their representatives get an earful.

I heard Pelosi on FNC yesterday say that Barry and the ‘RATS can stick it to America because they “won” and “elections have consequences”. It appears the ditz has gone over the edge. Unreal.

using a round number, basically this is how it works as it is now...

Diagnostic Laparoscopy = $1000

No Insurance, you pay $1000

top tier insurance like Blue Cross says,
Yeah it's worth $1000 but we give you so much business that you will take an adjustment of $150 and a write off of $100 and we'll pay you $750

Medicare says,
We don't think it's worth $1000, we only think it's worth $750 but, since we give you so much business you will take an adjustment of $150 and a write off of $100 and we'll pay you $500

Medicaid says,
We don't care what it costs, because we give you so much business we'll give you $250 or you can't treat Medicaid patients anymore.

now, cut that number and see how many Doc's will STILL treat them...

Can we just overwhelm the system already so President Cloward-Piven can commence with William Ayers’ plan to murder 10% of the US population to show us who’s boss?

Republicans should refuse to implement the doctor fix, this was part of the funding for Obamacare. Republicans should hang it around his neck.

Very soon the left will turn their venom towards doctors and other healthcare providers. It’s coming......

When doctors can’t pay their malpractice insurance, the the Democrat lawyers don’t get paid - then Obama and Congress will do something. In the meantime, elderly on Medicare and retired veteran heroes on TRICARE can suffer and die for all the Democrats care.

This is going to be fixed by Obama by either..

#1 Creating a salary for a doctor and that is that.
#2 Declaring a doctor will get no more pay than XYZ.

This is why no one is becoming doctors and most are instead going into law.

They all need to stop accepting Medicare.

The AARP endorsed this crap, I hope its members figure out they have been sold out soon.
