*Hat tip to Carolyn
If the healthcare bill doesn't pass, there are 2 bills waiting in the wings that will do just fine. These people are mad geniuses! S.B. 1110 and H.R. 2718 will take Medicare out of the Legislative branch and put it in the Executive branch.This must be read by all seniors and those who soon will be.
Look up the bills at:Thomas-Status of Bills-Tracking Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA), ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, commented, “As a congressional support agency, MedPAC’s mission is to advise Congress on Medicare payment issues. If MedPAC were to become part of the executive branch as contemplated in the Rockefeller bill, then Congress would no longer have this support agency to provide technical support when making policy decisions.” Senator Grassley also confirmed that he is not willing to abdicate congressional responsibilities for Medicare payment policymaking to a body that does not hold certificates of election.
