From the Why Didn't WE Think of This Department:
"(R)ather than relying only on the Medicare actuaries for such verification, along with other suggestions, such as including an across-the-board reduction in payments as a fallback mechanism if the council did not produce proposals that generated adequate savings." [ed: emphasis added]
This, from the administration's Budget Director, Peter Orszag, commenting on the latest CBO projections showing that ObamaCare proposals will "actually save almost no money over 10 years."
Well, reducing payments for services is certainly one way to cut costs; one wonders, though, how the actual health care providers might feel about that. As Bob has repeatedly pointed out, less than "half of all doctors do not accept Medicare assignment."
Another pay cut for doc's? At what point do they start "Going Galt?"
