ObamaCare: Home Health Care Is Toast

One of the better Medicare programs is Home Health Care.  In general, this program allows 'traveling' healthcare professionals to aid relatives in attending to the needs of individuals who remain at home instead of in managed-care environments such as nursing homes.

It saves money AND is a comfort to the Medicare patient.

Well, ObamCare will rip the guts out of that program. Yesterday:

Republicans, unified in opposition, forced the Democrats yesterday to reiterate their support for cutting more than $40 billion in home health-care services funding under Medicare. It was the latest Republican effort to highlight the bill’s potential impact on the elderly

Smart.  Very smart, Harry.

I can't wait for all the commercials next year in states with squishy Dem Senators touting how they voted to gut Medicare and make you put Granny in that horrible nursing home instead of staying at home.

Blanche Lincoln knows the score - she changed her vote to side with the Reps after already voting with the Dems.
