So Medicare is keeping rates flat instead of cutting them. To my knowledge that makes 5 years in a row in which payments to doctors have been held flat.
So whats the big deal? Do all of you work at companies where you got a 0% raise over the last 5 years?

Well Stella, docs don’t have to see Medicare patients and therefore won’t have to worry about reduced reimbursements – let freedom ring!

This would never happen in a universal single payer plan run by the government.
Medicare only does it because of that sonofabitch George Bush.
Now go out to play.
