  •  More Pelosi (0+ / 0-)
    Asked to clarify what she meant, and to detail what sort of changes she'd be open to, Pelosi insisted that any claims she could support cuts in the program are wrong. "No benefits cuts," she said flatly. Pelosi added that Dems have already put on the table the type of reform they should continue advocating for: The Affordable Care Act.
    "We gave the blueprint for how we strengthen Medicare in the Affordable Care Act," Pelosi said, a plan which is still "ripening" and "which does not reduce benefits. It lowers costs to taxpayers, the deficit, and beneficiaries." She said the only type of Medicare cuts she's open to are extracting savings via bureaucratic and pharmecutical reforms that don't touch benefits.
