Why Seniors Hate Obamacare

Monday, June 21, 2010  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

From USA Today:

The number of doctors refusing new Medicare patients because of low government payment rates is setting a new high, just six months before millions of Baby Boomers begin enrolling in the government health care program.

Recent surveys by national and state medical societies have found more doctors limiting Medicare patients, partly because Congress has failed to stop an automatic 21% cut in payments that doctors already regard as too low. The cut went into effect Friday, even as the Senate approved a six-month reprieve. The House has approved a different bill.

No wonder seniors, near-seniors and their kids hate Obamacare and will turn out Democrats in droves come November. Instead of fixing Medicare, the president and his Congressional allies have wrecked it.
