WASHINGTON (AP) - A senior administration official says billions of dollars to raise fees for doctors treating Medicare patients are not covered by President Barack Obama's pledge to pay for health care legislation. Budget Director Peter Orszag said Tuesday that's because the administration always assumed the money would be spent to prevent a cut of more than 20 percent in doctor fees.

Doctors have to work for free. It is the New World Order called America.
Obama brings SLAVERY back to America.
Golly! Who said Doctors need to get paid anyway? I mean its not like they have employees to pay or student loans to keep current on and things like that. I mean JEEZ! Now they want a paycheck?
/sarc as if I need one.
Wonder what the AMA is going to think that ZERO thought their 20% cut in fees was in the bill. They might want to think again about endorsing nationwide. Seventeen state AMA’s are opposed.
This whole hing is a hustle. Ive seen better shell games on the corner.
I wouldn’t be surprised if ObamaCare requires all Doctor fees to be paid to ACORN.
If this is for real, and I have no reason NOW not to believe it is, this is immediate grounds to STOP THIS SOCIALIST-TAKEOVER BILL IMMEDIATELY -— and force every Congress-person TO READ THE ENTIRE BILL, DISCUSS THE ENTIRE BILL and actually have the opportunity to turn it into something POSITIVE FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE -— other than the horrid, egregious government takeover vehicle that it is.
** THIS MONSTER MUST BE STOPPED!!! **
It’s about time for Obama to dump this on Joe Biden to straighten out these little details...
Lol go joe go!
I can’t believe Fox news is on now discussing how without an approval on the health bill by the blue dogs at least by the end of the year Obama’s presidency is dead. What a complete distraction. Obama’s presidency is already dead with the people. The excuse I keep hearing is that no one will come out to tell the truth because they may be accused of racism. Let me clue you in. Racism is deader than a doornail. The only ones calling you racist are the people that aren’t going to vote for you anyway. Nethertheless, let’s get back on track.
The American public don’t want the bill and we don’t want cap and steal. Is anyone listening to us? We don’t want these bills watered down or in any form whatsoever. We don’t want these bills period. We don’t want you to start over. We want these bills DOA.
When the Congresscritters go home at the break, their offices will be overrun with Rent-A-Mobs. These demonstrations will be dutifully reported by the state run media and the critters will go back to DC and say. “The people have spoken.”
So true; but we are still here and we can shout louder.
I'm all for that! Reach deep into your wallet, Mr. President. Yours, not mine.
Yes, that’s S.O.P. for the “community organizers”.
But “we” won’t get the air time from the media or even the time of day from the critters.
I can’t know what form this bill will end up in, but a health care reform bill WILL pass.
So glad you are on the negative side.
