Regarding “No Senate action on SGR; pay cut looms”:
I might suggest that Congress stay home permanently. The harm they are doing to this country by allowing year after year to pass without fixing the Medicare payment formula is without doubt unconscionable. If these men and women can't find a way to get beyond the power game they have effectively used to hold the healthcare system hostage, there will be millions of Americans who will have no option for healthcare available. Physicians simply will not be able to keep their doors open.
