Here is the Republican Union preventing the free market in America from working. The vote was 428 to 1 to approve an amendment to the resolution calling for a permanent fix to the sustainable growth rate formula that Medicare uses to set physician reimbursement. That formula would have triggered a 25% pay cut on January 1 had not Congress voted last December to delay it for 12 months. Organized medicine has warned that such a massive cut would drive physicians from the Medicare program, jeopardizing access to medical care for seniors as well as military families, whose TRICARE coverage is based on the Medicare fee schedule. http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/736057 So Republicans have their own Union to artifically inflate wages, yet squeal at other Unions!! LOL!
