    either leave it alone or scrap the whole Affordable Health Care Act and replace it, don't made changes to the Act - that's how government is dysfunctional

    That silliness was started by Bachmann, so of course people started looking for the truth.

    It's about reducing spending in Medicare. Nearly $220 billion comes from reducing annual increases in payments that health care providers receive from Medicare. Other savings include $36 billion from increases in premiums for higher-income beneficiaries and $12 billion from costlty administrative changes. Then there's another $136 billion in savings that would come from changes to the Medicare Advantage program.

    A new national board -- the Independent Payment Advisory Board -- will be asked to identify $15.5 billion in savings, but the board is prohibited from suggesting anything that would ration care or reduce or modify benefits.
