BREAKING: HEALTH CARE 8pm 7-15-08 House & Senate Override Bush Veto of Medicare Bill
Supporters broke a GOP-led filibuster of the bill last week, aided by the dramatic return of Sen. Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts. Kennedy's vote came in his first appearance on the Senate floor since surgery to remove a brain tumor in early June.
According to CNN, the bill would stop a 10.6 percent cut in Medicare payments to doctors, part of a scheduled cost-saving formula that went into effect July 1.
The American Medical Association lobbied heavily for the bill, warning that its members could be forced to curtail seeing Medicare patients if the cuts went into effect. It would also mean cutting funds from the privately administered Medicare Advantage program the Bush administration supports.
The Medicare Advantage program subsidizes private insurers to cover seniors who would otherwise be treated through Medicare.
