Double Counting in Health Care..

Now we know why rushing to pass this mess is so important...burried in the 2000 plus page bill are conflicting spending schemes...they plan to count /spend the money 'saved' from the Medicare cuts twice, once when taken and again later...

If I understand the scheme, it works a lot like Social Security...they collect the 'savings', dump it into the medicare fund, then write an IOU and spend it elsewhere and, when Medicare needs it, they must find new funds to provide the service they promised....It turns the already bogus CBO 'savings' of $130 Billion into a minus $170 billion over the same period...not counting the $200 billion doctor fix...

Congress, schemers and scammers...
