After a week of partisan wrangling, the Senate on Friday passed legislation to spare doctors a 21 percent cut in Medicare payments looming for months. But the last-ditch effort came too late.
Moments after the Senate acted, Medicare announced it would begin processing claims it has already received for June at the lower rate. The reason: the House cannot act on the fix until next week.
That little grenade exploded in Harry Reid's lap for good reason: HE (and QueenNancy) were the ones who took the 'doc fix' OUT of ObamaCare in order to 'bend the cost curve downward.'
They were successful!
