Trump is Right About Medicare – While Paul Ryan Sides With Obama
May 11, 2016
President Obama’s Medicare cuts are killing seniors.
His health law, the Affordable Care Act, tries to cut Medicare spending by paying bonuses to hospitals that spend the least per senior. The result? Hundreds of hospitals are skimping on care to win Uncle Sam’s bonuses.
Seniors at these hospitals aren’t getting the right antibiotic or other treatments they need. They’re dying from pneumonia, heart attacks and heart failure at higher rates than patients in other hospitals that provide more care.
