White House Scrambles to Keep Obamacare From Gutting Medicare Before Election
In today's New York Post, Benjamin Sasse and Charles Hurt report that the White House is again playing politics with Medicare. Obamacare guts Medicare Advantage, the popular market-based program to get Medicare coverage. (And it's very popular -- the program had 5.3 million enrollees in 2003, and now has 12 million. That includes more than one in three Medicare recipients in California and New York.) Suffice to say, many of those in the Medicare Advantage program would not be happy to find out about any changes to their Medicare plan before election day!
