More fodder. The Democrat House and Senate need to be tossed out for this sort of crap. The outrage of the taxpayer should be growing and will before the next election.

The Senate will do a similar move. This is in ADDITION to the over trillion dollar HC bill Reid plans to force down our throats.


House passes Medicare 'doc fix,' 243-183
By Molly K. Hooper - 11/19/09 04:41 PM ET
The House overwhelmingly approved a physician repayment bill to permanently fix the way doctors who cover Medicare patients are reimbursed.

Only one Republican member voted with Democrats for the bill that was approved 243-183.



Dr. Michael Burgess (R-Texas) endured intense lobbying efforts by his GOP colleagues to oppose the nearly quarter of a trillion dollar bill that Democrats do not offset.

Eleven Democrats joined 176 Republicans in opposing the bill that would fix what both parties described as a “flawed formula” for reimbursing doctors of Medicare patients.



Despite a vow to offset any new spending, the Democratic measure would cost $210 billion over 10 years but does not include a "pay-for" in the bill.

Republicans seized on that issue at a time when President Barack Obama said in China that there should not be any more deficit spending.

“It exacerbates the problem of the fiscal recklessness the majority party. As a physician I know, with every fiber of my being, that the doctors of this land are sick and tired of being played for fools,” Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) said on the floor, explaining that the Democratic bill would not sustain the rate of spending to make the payments.

The key point to remember here is that democrats are segregating this budget-buster from the overall health care reform proposal to avoid having it drive the cost of the health care reform bill above that which Obama said he'd accept. It's dishonest.
