Cuts--on again,off-again

The cuts that were to take effect on July 1st for cuts in Medicare paymements in sevices to Doctors were delayed again as you may know. The House voted 355 to 59 for further delay but the Senate voted one vote short last week.

On Monday the Bush administration said it would not process payments for the first 10 days of month to give the Congress time to prevent the reduction.

This is being done as a result of overwhelming opposition to the cuts by the doctors.
