He was concerned about the inflated prices that all the various segments of the Big Medical Interests charge us for.

But it turned out he was only referring to the monies that the Fed government allocates to this problem, and how those expenses will be paid.

And as that turns out, in part the monies will come from a major slash of MediCare "waste,' including monies to pay doctors. Doctors are already fleeing from treating geriatric patients - this will make it even harder to find doctors if you are on MediCare and do not have supplemental "boutique" coverage.

And no one at the Federal or Congressional level (except those who recently voted in the House for a public option) give a hound's tooth about the inflated costs that we consumers bear.
