After all, he paid into Medicare for more than four decades, but under Obamacare he will receive lower quality care than illegal aliens, the poor and the indigent who are on Medicaid.
It's all about reimbursements to doctors for services rendered:
The Trustees of the Medicare program have released their annual report... Medicare’s reimbursements to doctors are scheduled to drop by 31 percent on January 1, 2013. Only then is Medicare solvent until 2016/2024. If Congress passes another of its numerous “doc fixes,” Medicare’s insolvency will be even closer at hand. The optimistic insolvency estimate from the Trustees will require “unprecedented changes in health care delivery systems and payment mechanisms,” without which Medicare fees “are very likely to fall increasingly short of the costs of providing those services.”
“For these reasons, the financial projections shown in this report for Medicare do not represent a reasonable expectation for actual program operations in either the short range…or the long range,” writes Foster.
The executive summary: seniors who paid into the system are going to find fewer and fewer doctors accepting Medicare patients; rationing of health care will be the inevitable result.
But remember: the people have spoken! This is what America wanted!
