An Open Letter to Congress on the Final Medicare Prescription Drug Legislation

Dear Congress: The undersigned groups are strongly opposed to the final Medicare prescription drug legislation and urge all Members to vote "no." While there are many bad elements of this bill, among the most reckless are: - Adding to Medicare's Unfunded Liabilities. Medicare is already projected to go bankrupt. Nonetheless, this bill will unconscionably add hundreds of billions of dollars in unfunded liabilities to the program.

Medicare bills are bad policy, and bad politics

BY Michael Chahinian

When Republicans unveiled the "Contract with America" in 1994. they claimed it would be "the end of government that is too big, too intrusive and too easy with the public's money." Hmm . . . the $400 billion Medicare "reform" that Congress is working on is long on spending, big on government and short on reform. The Medicare trustees' own estimate for the value of unfunded liabilities, without the new prescription drug benefit, is around $38.3 trillion. That money will have to be paid through either massive tax increases or sharp spending cuts in the future.

First, Do No Harm

©2003 Copley News Service, 7/1/2003 Hippocrates, circa 400 B.C., is credited with creating the oath to which all doctors swore. The oath was subsequently named in his honor and survives to this day as the Hippocratic Oath. From this early date physicians were already organized into a guild, with regulations for training and the promotion of a professional ideal. To paraphrase from this oath, a doctor's responsibility is to "first, do no harm." Unfortunately for doctors, Congress does not abide by a similar oath, particularly in the area of health-care policy.

CSE Urges NO Vote on S.1 , the "Prescription Drug and Medicare Improvement Act"

Dear Senator, On behalf of the 280,000 members of Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE), I urge you to vote NO on S 1, the “Prescription Drug and Medicare Improvement Act of 2003”. In 2020, Medicare’s spiraling costs are projected to eat up 20 percent of all income tax revenue. The current fee-for-service Medicare program is unsustainable, and the Senate proposal will accelerate the Medicare crisis.

This Week on Capitol Hill

It is summertime, and for kids around the nation that means high dives and swimming pools. Congress, however, is cooling off by paddling in the red ink and by absolutely jumping off the cliff on Medicare. Mark this week in your calendar, folks-- you're about to witness the largest increase in government since the days of the Great Society and LBJ. Medicare

Medical Malpractice Legislation And Consumer Impact: Is there a doctor in the county?

Goal: To make high quality, affordable healthcare more widely available. Our goal is for Texans to have access to quality, affordable health care. We all recognize the need for those truly injured to be compensated and for bad players to not just be punished but to be weeded out. We also share in our desire that the injured patients get quicker compensation for their "economic losses."
