Aren't you all sick and tired of hearing about the impending 21% cut in doctor reimbursements on Medicare patients? This farce of a story has been cropping up in the news every couple of months. I'm sick of it. At the last minute, the "doc fix" will get tucked into the back pages of some unrelated Congressional bill and the problem will be deferred till the next fiscal year. Does anyone doubt that this won't happen?
Just like i don't care about whether Brett Favre ever plays football again or retires to raise cattle and alpacas on his Mississippi ranch, I could care less about the impending Medicare cuts. It isn't a story until something substantive is done. All else is just frenzied speculation. The minute I hear the words "Brett Favre" on ESPN, I flip the channel. Same when I see him tossing footballs to randoms dudes in that Wrangler commercial. Enough is enough.
As far as I'm concerned, the "Brett Favre Rule" is in effect for the Medicare Doc Fix. I don't want to hear about it anymore.
