    There is clearly a disconnect between President Obama and Congress

    WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama is asking Republican lawmakers to approve billions of dollars in new spending to avert a scheduled 21 percent cut in payments to doctors who treat Medicare patients.

    PRESIDENT OBAMA and congress passed pay-go legislation.
    The Republican position is that the $ 265 billion cost should not be borrowed but taken from other programs.

    Obama '' The Music Man '' has been caught in one of his lies about the healthcare bill.
    All smoke and mirrors, the real Obama being exposed day by day.
    The job of President of the US is in Washington not in all the travels that Obama is taking on Air Force 1 ( his private corporate jet ) at taxpayer expense.

      What's the problem? All they have to do is print more money.

      Just ask those bankers to give up with the $$ and all is well.

      Because you KNOW what programs the republicans want to cut....all needed ones you can bet. But the big money give-aways wont be touched.
      All the Agri-farms that are ruining food and farmers...why don't they cut there?
      In fact, why don't we get rid of them? Monsanto is a lush with public funds. For crap Frankenfood.

      Ok pubbies? ahahahaha
      Military cuts? Xi cuts? Corporate give-aways cut? ahahahaa

      And wasn't it nice when Bush flew commercial???

        I wanted to comment on this one comment about printing more money. They have talked about prining more money here in the UK. This is the best way to de-value the curriency. If they keep it up before too long the GBP will have less value then toilet paper, mmmm wiping my behind with the queens kisser hmm

        As for the topic of this thread, Obama is another politician, big surprise, all politicians are useless IMO.

    I would say that's a good move! 'Coz demotivated docs make for a dangerous recipe, especially if you are going under the knife! smile And if you are the doc, well the extra dough does sure seem good!

    On a serious note, I think a lot of us today depend on the Medicare system for living it beyond a good age, and to under-pay or cringe while paying them back, even literally, is a bad idea!
