  •  With almost all of the focus on the proposal's... (5+ / 0-)

    chained-CPI, I think some of that focus should be redirected to the changes to Medicare also included in the budget, which would increase out-of-pocket expenses for people using outpatient services instead of hospital admittance.

    WTF? That makes absolutely no sense to me.

    You'd think any decent proposal would include incentives for people using outpatient services and doctor's office visits as opposed to inpatient hospital services, thereby decreasing loads on hospitals, which are by far more expensive to maintain.

    Markey gets it.

    I just wish he'd talk more about this illogical aspect of the president's proposal.
