The administration is cutting billions of dollars from Medicare Advantage – an extremely popular program – while Obamacare, an unpopular program falling short of enrollment expectations, receives the White House’s full support.
This is another broken promise from the Obama Administration.
In 2009, President Obama said, “If you like your doctor, you keep your doctor. If you like your current insurance, you keep that insurance. Period, end of story.”
Regardless of this pledge, many Hoosier seniors could have to either switch to another Medicare Advantage plan, if one is available in their area, or return to traditional Medicare.
President Obama should keep his promise to seniors and reverse these proposed cuts to Medicare Advantage. Taking this action will mitigate one of the many negative impacts the president’s health care policies are having on Hoosier seniors, workers and middle-class families.
