The President addresses the issue of Medicare reimbursements for doctors and presses the Senate for an “Up-or-Down” vote to prevent pending pay cuts — an issue the President warns could affect the quality of health care for senior citizens.

Speaking of the need for Congressional action, the President cautioned,

“If they don’t act, doctors will see a 21% cut in their Medicare payments this week. This week, doctors will start receiving these lower reimbursements from the Medicare program. That could lead them to stop participating in the Medicare program. And that could lead seniors to lose their doctors.”
