Medicare cuts ironic from those who lay claim to pro-life, family values
LETTER — Posted May 9, 2005
Regarding "Medicare trustees: Gloomy forecast for physician reimbursement rates" (Article, April 11): A Medicare payment plan that results in limiting medical care to seniors is a gentle form of extermination. This is an odd position for the family values/pro-life crowd behind this cruel plan.
The whole thing is disgusting. Surely the Republican leadership can find a way to give away public money to private companies without sacrificing good health care for seniors.
