Unfortunately the Medicare cuts will go into effect July 1st having failed support predominately from GOP and Bush. What really irks me is that they support keeping the dollars in the pockets of the Medicare-advantage private carriers, who essentially are the same insurers driving the cost of insurance up and reimbursements down. This is a double padding of their pockets as they benefit by being able to lower our contracted rates that are all tied to Medicare. I have voted GOP for the past 5 elections, and this alone will see me turn the other way.
