Find a Lasting Solution to Medicare Doctor Payments: No More Cuts!This petition is addressed to U.S. Congress
Eligible Signatories: All free people of this universe are eligible
Last July, Congress stood up against President Bush and voted to temporarily block payment cuts to doctors who serve Medicare patients. The decision was good news for the hundreds of thousands of patients who receive treatment under Medicare, but the success was only temporary.
Now Medicare payment cuts are back on the table. In place of the short-term band-aid fixes we have been seeing for years, Congress must to work with physicians on developing a long-term solution to a payment system that all agree is fatally flawed.
With a floundering economy and a record number of baby boomers entering their golden years, our country is facing an imminent health care crisis. Tell Congress that Medicare is just too important! Real health system reform must include Medicare reform. Now is the time for a real, permanent solution.
