    OH come on, isn't this what you voted for?

    Blackmail: Obama Regime Warns Supreme Court Not To Overturn Obamacare Or Medicare Might Suddenly Freeze Up…

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Medicare’s payment system, the unseen but vital network that handles 100 million monthly claims, could freeze if President Barack Obama’s health care law is summarily overturned, the administration quietly informed the courts.

    Although Obama’s overhaul made significant cuts to providers and improved prescription and preventive benefits, Medicare was overlooked in Supreme Court arguments that focused on the law’s controversial requirement that all individuals carry health insurance.

    Havoc for Medicare could have repercussions as both parties avidly court seniors in this election year and as hospitals and doctors increasingly complain the program doesn’t pay enough.

    Last year, in a lower court filing, Justice Department lawyers said reversing Medicare payment changes “would impose staggering administrative burdens” on the government and “could cause major delays and errors” in claims payment.

    Wake up.

    • Stay on your political pedestal......see what it gets you. None of these suits are going to help your wake up. If you're treating it as a pass time okay.....If you're listening to the likes of Rick Santelli, Rush L. or any of these other croons, be careful.......;remember what croney caspitalism did to ENRON...... Think for yourself and leave the polotics behind!!!!!! It's all just a Ruse...Don't squander your retirement here......

      • That's a great post Mom, I like it when I finally expose those who refuse to see or question what's going on. Pretend nothing is happening live in a protected bubble of fog. Me, Ill question especially when my country is going down the tubes.

        I have a question are you happy with things as they are?, Do you really believe the Tea Party is racist?. Are you happy with trillions more in debt but were disgusted when it was much lower under Bush who was no champ in my book but better than the loser we have now?. Were you screaming about oil prices at $1.84 when bush left office and how he is in bed with the oil companies but Obama can't do anything because it's commodity driven (same as Bush). Are you happy with 8.1% unemployment or worse under wonder boy but Bush couldn't do anything right at 5.4%. When exactly do you take the boy wonder to task, when it's too late?.

        I repeat, wake up!.
