HHS Secretary in WPB slams as “nonsense” claims of $700B in Medicare cuts [View all]

WEST PALM BEACH —

Claims that the Affordable Care Act is cutting more than $700 billion in Medicare benefits are “just nonsense,” U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said today as protestors waved signs outside.

“I do think that is one of the constant untruths that is part of the dialogue,” Sebelius said in a morning visit to talk to seniors about the federal health care law in West Palm Beach. “There have been no benefit cuts. It’s slowing down the rate of increase.”

Outside, handwritten placards criticized $700 billion in Medicare cuts under Obamacare and asserted “Romney and Ryan Right 4 Medicare.”

“I want to stop Obamacare,” said one of the protesters, Elaine Fandino of Greenacres. GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s Florida communications director stood next to her.
