So who's paying?

Who's going to pay?

Senate Wrangles Over Medicare-Payments Fix.
The Wall Street Journal


The Wall Street Journal reports that “Backers of legislation to set up a new system of Medicare payments to doctors and other providers are seeking to settle a flurry of last-minute skirmishes that threaten its quick passage in the Senate when Congress returns from a two-week recess Monday. The main concern is from conservatives who are frustrated that two-thirds of the measure’s $214 billion cost would be financed through higher deficits and are looking at ways to pay for the measure without resorting to borrowing. The Senate is expected to take up the bill early in the week, but first Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) must contend with efforts by lawmakers in both parties to amend the legislation.”

Easy fix; tax the rich, quit giving the oil companies and corporate farmers ANYH welfare checks and that pretty much covers all the cost. Why harm the elderly just so corporations get more in welfare and don't pay their fair share of taxes?

You're an idiot. The Medicare Doc fix has been done every year for the past 15 years. Get a clue.
Thanks from LongWinded

I can tell you who won't pay. YOU !!!!! On average, a Medicare recipient will only have paid in Medicare taxes 1/3 of their total Medicare subsidy. TAKER !!!!
