Once again Republicans are doing anything they can to weaken Obamacare for no other reason but to turn back progress to our healthcare system just because it was something President Obama was a part of. It doesn’t seem to matter whether it was a sensible idea or not. “IPAB was created as a strengthened version of the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC), a body with no regulatory power that solely advises Congress, but cannot enact regulations in and of itself. Since 1997, MedPAC had recommended cuts totaling "hundreds of billions of dollars" to Medicare that were ignored by Congress. “. I support IPAB which grants authority to make changes to the Medicare program with the Congress being given the power to overrule the agency's decisions through supermajority vote.
