Do you want to know what Obamacare does to Medicare? Do you want to save the American Dream for our kids?

Medicare cost increases are 'the' leading contributor to rising unsustainable entitlement costs bankrupting the country. Medicare needs to be reform but NOT 'obama-style' through Obamacare=government control of your healthcare!!

What does Obamacare do to Medicare?

The truth: Obamacare makes massive changes to the program. Obamacare contains more than 160 provisions for Medicare that increase government’s control over the delivery of care, hit doctors with unsustainable payment cuts, and leave taxpayers with higher deficits.


Obamacare Continues an Outdated Model for Reform: Obamacare expands central planning and tightens price controls on providers. These recycled mechanisms have yet to show any success in driving down costs without harming patients’ access and quality of care. Even the program’s chief accountant says many Medicare providers cannot survive the cuts.

  • Obamacare Undermines the Doctor–Patient Relationship: On top of the severe payment cuts facing physicians that will threaten seniors’ access, the law weakens the doctor–patient relationship by linking payment not to patient outcomes but to adherence to government protocol.

    Caps Medicare Spending: Obamacare places hard caps on Medicare spending that ends the open-ended entitlement program. While there is a broad consensus on the need to put Medicare on a budget, Obamacare turns these major payment decisions over to an unelected board. The Independent Payment Advisory Board will control the Medicare budget and be unstoppable unless Congress intervenes.

    Ends Fee-for-Service:
    Obamacare’s Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation will conduct payment and delivery reform demonstrations with a goal of changing Medicare from fee-for-service to “capitated” or salaried payments. Unlike a pluralistic system of competitive plans, Medicare patients will have little or no control over whether or not they will be subject to these changes.
  • Diverts Medicare Savings to Pay for Obamacare: Obamacare squeezes an estimated $575 billion out of Medicare from provider payment cuts in its initial 10 years. But rather than plowing those savings back into Medicare to enhance the solvency of the program, the savings will be used to expand other Obamacare entitlements and programs.

      It's all downhill because as the cuts occur the Medicare Docs will start to dry up.

      Fees to doctors were 'cut' years ago to give a false effort at balancing the budget --- but annually we go through the 'Doc Fix' funding to restore the fees. It's the Government using their ability to play 'funny money' in order to 'appear' to attempt to balance the budget.

      That is right and you can see here where the money is going to fund obama's new entitlement program...

      SS and medicare have increased in cost 1000% since their inception... If obamacare does the same it will cost over 23 Trillion dollars. Go investigate

      I'm 67 and I just went in for a simple health care test that used to cost $100,00 out of pocket just months ago! Yet that price changed to $250.00 out of pocket starting 1/1/12

      That is exactly right. That is exactly what is happening.. and all these idiots don't realize after obama taxes the upper middle class out of existence... he will then go to them for the money!

      SS and medicare budgets have increased over 1000% from their original

      If obamacare does the same I read the budget number would be 23 Trillion dollars!

      We are looking at 40 to 60 Trillion in unfunded entitlement spending now... Just imagine what obama care would do!

      It was the last straw that will break the camel's back - they were very crafty not to implement it prior to this election - the actual program will most likely wake a few more people up when they realize just what it entails. They knew they couldn't take the heat.

      The is very true. The only real way to addresss costs is to create competition.. Healthcare because of government involvement has never been a 'free' market...

      The goal of healthcare reform should be to create a more free market so that competition can do its' thing.

      The stimulus bill gives that Medical Panel its power. There is a number of control panels which were given power but Cap and Trade didn't get passed or our life would really be hell. Now giving power thru Obamacare for Sibillis to make the regulations is a disaster of the first order as her mentality is you rape'em ,we'll scrape'em meaning no compassion of any sort on human misery. So its not just repealing Obamacare but repelling portions of that Stimulus bill dealing with the boards which have been financed to 2019.

      Obama and the Progressives took care of that with this insurmountable debt he has accumulated, more debt than ALL of the PREVIOUS Presidents combined.

      The plan takes 10 years to balance the budget, but hey, Rome wasn't built, nor did it collaspe in a day. It looks like a good plan, and one paragraph sounded wonderful to me;

      This plan substantially reduces the size and scope
      of the federal government, fundamentally increases
      the role of the states in choosing their own practices,
      and brings decision-making closer to the people
      rather than unelected administrators. These are crucial
      steps that will get our nation on a path of fiscal,
      political, and constitutional responsibility. It is part
      of our larger effort to get our country back on track,
      reclaim its truths, conserve its liberating principles,
      and build an America where freedom, opportunity,
      prosperity, and civil society flourish.

      Not a brain surgeon heh? Too bad, I had a bunch of questions about why LiberaI brains function at such a low level, but never mind...... :)
      I was listening to Levin that night also, and I have to admit, I had a very sick feeling in my stomach that my generation will be the first to be denied care, based on our age. The idea that we will be "units", as oppossed to patients, shows how far Kathleen Sebilius and this administration will go to remove health care providers from the the reality of what they will be involved in, which is the death panels we have been warned of.
