Medicare Reimbursement Scam Defeated

The Senate on Wednesday blocked an expensive change to the way doctors are paid under Medicare over concern about the mounting deficit, in what Republicans called the first defeat for President Obama's health care plan...Democratic leaders had sought the 10-year, nearly $250 billion bill as a fix to the long-term Medicare problem, but without proposing a way to pay for it, they lost support from moderate Democrats...Senate Defeats Costly Medicare Fix, Jennifer Habberkorn and Kara Rowland, Washington Times, 10/22/2009

That's one scam down. Who knows how many more are to come? However, it appears that not all Democrats in the Senate are part of Rahm's Chicago gang.
