More Newspapers Questioning Medicare Proposal

Newspapers are continuing to weigh-in on the Medicare proposal now under consideration by Congress. As the Heritage Foundation says: “The growing editorial chorus says the Medicare drug proposal now being worked on by a Capitol Hill committee is flawed and will cost taxpayers billions. The newspapers are liberal, moderate and conservative. But they all agree on this: The Medicare drug proposals must go.”

All this was predicable. Medicare reform is too important to rush. Congress initially gave itself a few weeks for the entire job. Senators in committee voted on the Senate version without enough time to read it. Let’s not waste this opportunity — let’s do this job right.
