Saving Seniors from ObamaCare

Henry, did you bother to read this article? Obamacare is indeed taking $716 billion out of Medicare, much of it coming out of Medicare Advantage. That cost savings will be realized by reducing payments to providers. When Medicare providers get starved and cheated enough, there will be no Medicare providers. BRW, Obama just moved a slick $8.3 billion back into Medicare to temporary cover those Medicare Advantage cuts because they were scheduled to kick in before the election.

Two things about the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) are increasingly clear: (1) seniors have been singled out and forced to bear a disproportionate share of the cost of a new entitlement for young people and (2) the states are administratively just not ready to implement the new program in time for its January 1, 2014, start date.

So here's a simple proposal that will not affect the federal deficit: Delay the scheduled cuts in Medicare spending by five years and pay for that expense by delaying the 2014 start date of ObamaCare by two years.

That would give everyone time...
