One of my major concerns with the health care bill passed by the House Majority last week is the negative impact it would have on seniors. Supporters of this plan have attempted to suggest that the hundreds of billions in Medicare cuts contained in the bill somehow wouldn’t impact services, but simple common sense suggests otherwise. However, over this weekend, a new nonpartisan report confirms our fears about this bill’s effect on seniors.
As reported in the Washington Post, the reports states the bill “would sharply reduce benefits for some senior citizens and could jeopardize access to care for millions of others.”
