A Pushback on the The Independent Payment Advisory Board

Both Democrats and Republicans are together in  opposing one of the prime  features of  Obama’s new deficit reduction plan, the Independent Payment Advisory Board, a powerful independent board that could institute sweeping cuts in Medicare spending. The President has said he wants to expand the power of the 15-member panel. HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has said the board would be a backstop to ensure that health costs are reduced. You can be certain  that this is a first step to intense rationing of health care for the elderly.
