house Bill H.R. 2

The "Doc Fix": Reforming Medicare Reimbursements For Doctors and Reauthorizing Other Medical Programs

Argument in favor

This bill would strengthen Medicare by permanently repealing the Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR), it will save taxpayers money, and put the U.S. budget on a more sustainable path.

Will this cost more between now and 2025? Yes, unfortunately. But doing nothing means doctors will get paid less, and our physician shortage will worsen. Plus, this bill should save money after 2025.

Argument opposed

"Sustainable"? This bill wants to permanently repeal the SGR without meaningful spending reductions — adding $141 billion to federal deficits seems like the opposite of putting U.S. spending on a better path.

Its high time you quit spending my money. I am against anything that costs 1 penny more than it did last year. The answer is not more money. The answer is spend it smarter. Government pisses away too damn money on administration and stupid crap. Its time to audit and streamline everything, cut out all the stupid spending and stupid costly rules and regulations, (I bet my next paycheck if the gov ran like a business it could have all the entitlements it does now on half the money) and start running it like a business. You do not have permission to spend any more of my money until you prove you can be responsible with it I don't give a damn what party you claim to belong to!

    Lack of health insurance should not not be either a death sentence or cause family bankruptcy.

    Why do government bureaucrats and politicians continually strive to eliminate healthcare options in this country by running physicians out of business? No physicians can make a living with Medicare reimbursements now. I am not talking about making $250,000-1,000,000 per year; I mean simply making a profit at all!

    Why is the government in healthcare to begin with? Free markets, give the money back to the people who paid into the program.

    Tell me where the money is coming from, the IRS budget, Dept of Commerce, White House vacations. It is time to stop robbing the people to pay the government.

    Disconnecting doctor's reimbursements from the economic index is not a wise thing to do. It would allow the cost of medical treatment to rise even if the economy plummets.
